(Follow me on Twitter: @brettkeller)
Welcome to my blog on public health and development. I recently finished a dual degree in public health (MSPH in Global Disease Epidemiology and Control from Johns Hopkins) and public policy (MPA in Economics and Public Policy from Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School). I now work with the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI)’s Applied Analytics Team supporting projects throughout sub-Saharan Africa. This blog represents my personal views only.
I write about things I find interesting: global health news and policy, economic development, statistical and methodological developments and controversies, and bad science writing. I also blog less occasionally about high power rocketry at 3FNC.com (“three fins and a nose cone”). I’m originally from Searcy, Arkansas, and have since lived in DC, Baltimore, Princeton, Addis Ababa, and NYC. Professionally I’ve been an M&E intern with the Last 10 Kilometers Project (a JSI Research & Training, Inc. project), an online communications and fundraising consultant to nonprofits, and a student researcher with the NYC Dept of Health (in their Epi Scholars program) researching childhood lead poisoning. I’m a proud recipient of the Harry S Truman Scholarship, and have traveled, worked, or volunteered in >35 countries.

All views are my own and do not represent the views of my current or past employers, partner organizations, friends, etc.
Blog comments can be some of the most interesting things to read on the internet, or some of the most mind-bogglingly frustrating. To bend the curve closer to the former I reserve the right to express some editorial control by holding for moderation, deleting or blocking comments/commenters who use egregious profanity or are otherwise NSFW, who threaten folks, who haven’t read the Wikipedia page on ad hominem, or who repeatedly troll. Anonymous comments are allowed but it helps if you use a consistent, unique pseudonym to facilitate discussion.
