Professor & William Dawson Scholar
PhD, Harvard University
Erin Strumpf, PhD, is a Professor in the Department of Economics and the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health at McGill University. She is a William Dawson Scholar and held two Chercheur boursier career awards from the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé. Prof. Strumpf is a founding member of McGill’s Public Policy and Population Health Observatory (3PO). She received her PhD in Health Policy from Harvard University and her BA from Smith College.
Prof. Strumpf’s research in health economics evaluates the impacts of policy and clinical interventions on population health, health inequalities, and health care system performance. She uses methods for causal inference, principally quasi-experimental designs, to estimate the effects of interventions in real-world settings and actively collaborates with decision makers to generate relevant, usable knowledge to improve population health and health care system performance. She has presented her work to provincial ministries of health and of finance in Canada, and to policymakers in France and the United States.
