Megan E. Carey, PhD, MSPH, is an infectious diseases epidemiologist and public health policy expert. Her primary research interests include the translation of epidemiological evidence to policy and the impact of vaccines on antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Megan recently joined IAVI as an Associate Director, where she is leading the development of a new AMR strategy. Megan is also a Postdoctoral Policy Fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as part of the AMRnet project, which is focused on the development and application of genomic data visualization tools to inform public health action. Megan received a PhD from the University of Cambridge, where she focused on policy applications for Salmonella Typhi (S. Typhi) genomic data. Megan has also consulted for the World Health Organization, where she established the typhoid conjugate vaccine (TCV) research agenda, developed a framework for measuring the impact of vaccines on AMR, and presented an update on TCVs to SAGE. Megan also co-founded the Global Typhoid Genomics Consortium, which aims to aggregate, analyze, and visualize S. Typhi genomic data to monitor the emergence and spread of AMR to inform public health interventions.

Previously, Megan worked at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on the Enteric & Diarrheal Disease team, where she managed a large portfolio of grants focused on typhoid, rotavirus, and cholera control. Megan has a Master of Science in Public Health from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, specializing in Global Disease Epidemiology and Control and Vaccine Science and Policy.
