We Are: Chengbo Zeng, PhD

Dr. Chengbo Zeng is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the PROVE center with training in quantitative analytic methods, intervention design and evaluation, and ecological research. His research interests have focused on the structural and social barriers to the care continuum among people living with communicable diseases. Dr. Zeng applied ecological design and geospatial analysis to investigate these barriers and developed theory-based health promotion interventions to mitigate the negative impacts. He has vast experience in intervention evaluation using advanced statistical methods, such as growth curve modeling and growth mixture modeling. Prior to the PROVE center, he was a Research Fellow in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Working with a team of epidemiologists and clinicians, he leveraged a target trial approach and causal inference methods (e.g., inverse probability weighting) to compare the effectiveness of different regimens for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. His work has been published in top-tier journals, such as Clinical Infectious Diseases, Journal of Medical Internet Research, and AIDS
