Aravind Menon, PhD, Epidemiologist

Aravind Menon joined the Two Rivers team in 2020 as our Epidemiologist. In his position, he studies disease progression and analyzes morbidity and mortality data. Aravind Menon trained and practiced as a physician in South and Western India before enrolling for his Masters in Public Health at the Sri Chitra Tirunal Institute of Medical Science and Technology. Following this, he led a large-scale reproductive health intervention for married adolescent girls in Central India for two years before pursuing a year-long NIH-Fogarty fellowship in Durban, South Africa. During the fellowship, he explored the power of conditional cash transfers to encourage responsible personal behavior among school-going adolescents in a high HIV-prevalence area. After moving to the US over ten years back, he enrolled for his PhD at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, analyzing cervical cancer screening during routine antenatal and postnatal screening visits in urban Malawi for his doctoral thesis. The thing Aravind loves most about his position at Two Rivers is the ability to observe the ability of simple, evidence-based interventions to improve the health of communities and positively impact the lives of countless people. During his spare time, Aravind likes to read fantasy graphic novels and cook Indian food for friends and family. He lives in Lexington with his wife and children aged one & six years.
