Steve Goodreau, PhD

Steven M. Goodreau, PhD is a Professor of Biological Anthropology and Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Washington (UW). He received his PhD from Penn State in 2001, where his work focused on the intersections of population genetics, social network analysis and demography in the context of HIV evolution. He has been at UW since then, as an active member of the Statnet Development Team and co-lead of the Network Modeling Group. Among his administrative hats is Development Director for the Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology (CSDE), UW’s NIH-funded population center. Dr. Goodreau’s modeling work focuses primarily on the epidemiology of HIV among men who have sex with men, both domestically and internationally, with interests in both the origin of disparities and the likely impact of interventions. He maintains additional research foci on the evolution of HIV virulence, and on sexual health among adolescents more broadly.
