Surabhi Yadav is a Research Associate at the ISPH. Before joining ISPH, Surabhi worked as a Junior Research Scientist/ Data Manager on the NIH-funded Nurse Community-Family Partnership RADx-UP Program project. In this position, she employed comprehensive biostatistical and epidemiologic analyses to evaluate the model’s effectiveness in promoting COVID-19 testing and control measures uptake. She developed data collection tools and analytical methods to identify populations disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on improving health outcomes through a health equity lens.
Her previous experience extends to the Boricua Youth Study at New York State Psychiatric Institute (NYSPI) and the Urban Epidemiology Lab at NYU, where she contributed to various public health projects. Her experience includes in-depth work with longitudinal survey data, complex surveys, observational data analysis, and systematic reviews.

Her research interests lie at the intersection of mental health and infectious diseases, health disparities, and population health.
