Biography

Dr. Meyer completed her clinical training in and maintains board certification in Internal Medicine, Addiction Medicine and Infectious Diseases, along with DEA certification to prescribe buprenorphine. Her clinical work has included a weekly HIV clinic at York Correctional Institution for Women, the only carceral facility for women in the state of Connecticut, which informs her investigative work. She has received formal training in clinical research methods through two post-doctoral fellowships, one in Investigative Infectious Diseases and one in Interdisciplinary HIV Prevention Training at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS, and a Master of Science in Biostatistics and Epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health. Her research career to date has focused on issues related to HIV prevention and treatment among women in diverse carceral settings, especially as it is intertwined with and complicated by substance use disorders and intimate partner violence. She has published in a broad array of peer-reviewed journals, collaborating with interdisciplinary teams of scientists, and has been continuously funded by the NIH and other federal, industry, and foundational sources for over a decade.
