Kristin  Wall

Asst Professor

Assistant Professor

Faculty, Epidemiology

After obtaining a degree in Biomedical Engineering in 2006, Dr. Wall sought advanced training in Epidemiology and Biostatistics and has been an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Emory University since 2012. Her research agenda strives to advance evidence-based decision-making to improve outcomes related to HIV and family planning. Specifically, Dr. Wall’s research focuses on improving efficiencies in HIV prevention and treatment and family planning through studies of service integration and cost-effectiveness both domestically and in limited-resource settings. She currently holds an NIH K01 award (2016-2020) to explore optimal HIV program resource allocations in Zambia. She is a Principal and Co-Investigator on several international and domestic grants to promote and integrate couples’ voluntary HIV counseling and testing with family planning services; promote effective contraception for prevention of unplanned pregnancy and perinatal HIV transmission; improve HIV prevention for key populations (discordant couples, sex workers, and men who have sex with men); and use technology to improve data quality and patient safety in clinical trials. She collaborates with the Emory-based Rwanda Zambia HIV Research Group (RZHRG); Programs, Research, & Innovation in Sexual Minority Health (PRISM) Group; and the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS). Additionally, she greatly enjoys and prioritizes teaching epidemiological methods to students from a range of educational levels.
