Eva Rest, MS


Eva Rest is an M.D.-Ph.D. student intending to pursue her Ph.D. in Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases. Her research interests include disease modeling, dynamics of respiratory and vaccine-preventable diseases, public health interventions, and global health. Eva hopes to use her M.D.-Ph.D. training to integrate clinical infectious disease care with dynamical disease models and data-driven surveillance and interventions.

Eva earned her M.S. in Global Infectious Disease at Georgetown University where she studied respiratory disease dynamics and spatial heterogeneity in vaccination patterns in the lab of Dr. Shweta Bansal. Previously, she researched harm reduction strategies for substance use disorders at the University of Illinois Chicago's Institute for Health Research and Policy. She graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, studying global health and health policy.
