Dr. Reddy’s research interests include tobacco, HIV, and tuberculosis, both individually and in combination. He applies methods of simulation modeling, epidemiology, and cost-effectiveness analysis to study clinical and economic outcomes in the US and in other countries. The goal of his research is to provide evidence- and model-based approaches to clinical decision-making and public health policy. Dr. Reddy is a faculty investigator in the Medical Practice Evaluation Center (www.massgeneral.org/medicine/mpec) and the Tobacco Research and Treatment Center (www.massgeneral.org/medicine/trtc), both at MGH.
Dr. Reddy’s work has been reported by NBC News, Reuters, and WBUR/National Public Radio. He has been invited to present his work as a consultant to the World Health Organization. His research is supported by the National Institutes of Health.
