Jay Graham’s research contributes to the development of more efficient and effective approaches to scale-up public health initiatives for the prevention and control of infectious diseases.

Dr. Jay Graham applies advanced epidemiologic methods and next-generation DNA sequencing to refine our understanding of the spatial and temporal transmission of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and zoonotic infectious diseases. He has worked in a variety of countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa, and he has extensive experience working on the US-México border where he conducted research on the primary prevention of diarrheal diseases and pneumonia within informal settlements of Ciudad Juárez, MX. Much of his recent work has focused on research to prevent and control the spread of antimicrobial resistance. Dr. Graham holds an M.P.H. and an M.B.A., and he received his PhD from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Prior to joining the faculty in EHS, he served as a AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow, and served as a lead technical advisor on water, sanitation and hygiene and household air pollution in the Bureau for Global Health at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
