Dr. Ashly E. Jordan’s academic and professional research and work has focused on the interplay of addiction and substance use and dependence in exacerbating harms created and perpetuated by systematic social and economic inequality. Dr. Jordan received her MPH in Biostatistics and Epidemiology from Hunter College in 2013 and completed a NIDA-funded pre-Doctoral fellowship. She received her PhD in Epidemiology from the Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy at the City University of New York in 2019, and is currently a post-Doctoral fellow in the NIDA-funded Behavioral Sciences Training in Drug Abuse Research at New York University. Her work employs quantitative, qualitative, and systematic review methods and has centered on hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection due to non-sterile drug injection, and the preventable HCV-related morbidity and mortality that remain under-addressed and contribute to the ongoing HCV epidemic and to the syndemic of opioid misuse, overdose, and HCV and HIV infection. Her dissertation research developed novel measures to monitor the HCV epidemic among people who use drugs and examined HCV incidence and prevalence among people receiving methadone for opioid use disorder in NYC. She has published in a broad range of peer-reviewed journals and is also an Affiliated Investigator at the Center for Drug Use and HIV/HCV Research.
