BiographyMatthew Fox, DSc, MPH, is Associate Professor in the Center for Global Health & Development and in the Department of Epidemiology at Boston University. Dr. Fox joined the Center in 2001. Before joining Boston University, he was a Peace Corps volunteer in the former Soviet Republic of Turkmenistan. His research interests include treatment outcomes in HIV-treatment programs, infectious disease epidemiology (with specific interests in HIV, pneumonia, and malaria), and epidemiologic methods. Dr. Fox is currently funded through a K award from the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to work on ways to improve retention in HIV-care programs in South Africa from the time of testing HIV-positive through long-term treatment. As part of this work, he is involved in analyses of whether treating patients at higher CD4 counts leads to improved long-term retention and treatment outcomes. Dr. Fox also does research on quantitative sensitivity analysis and recently co-authored a book on these methods, Applying Quantitative Bias Analysis to Epidemiologic Data. He currently teaches a third-level epidemiologic methods class. Dr. Fox is a graduate of the Boston University School of Public Health with a master’s degree in epidemiology and biostatistics and a doctorate in epidemiology.
