About Professor Martin

University Expert

Erika Martin is an associate professor in the Department of Public Administration and Policy. As an applied health policy researcher, she uses mixed methods to evaluate issues related to the allocation of scarce public health resources, the adoption and impact of public health policies, and ways to improve the sustainability and impact of open health data platforms. Her work in HIV policy includes examining the fairness and flexibility of the federal allocations for HIV care and prevention, interstate variation in state HIV programs, the budget impact of expanded HIV screening on public programs, how the Affordable Care Act will affect HIV care, the impact of New York's HIV testing law and Ending the Epidemic policy strategies, and the evolution of New York's policy response to opioid overdose. In addition to her HIV policy research, she studies how public health agencies can release open data in a way that is more usable and fit for public health research. She has considerable experience working with government clients to translate evidence-based research into practice.

Articles she’s written have appeared in an array of leading health and public policy journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Health Affairs, American Journal of Public Health, Public Administration Review, and Journal of Policy Analysis and Management. She was the staff writer for a letter and companion report to the US Department of Health and Services secretary regarding recommendations to maximize the value of Healthdata.gov.

Dr. Martin received her B.A. from Brown University, her M.P.H. in Epidemiology from the University of Michigan, and her Ph.D. in Health Policy and Administration from Yale University. At Rockefeller College, she teaches courses on policy analysis and research design.
