Dr. Bershteyn is an Assistant Professor of Population Health at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. Since March 2020, her lab has partnered with New York City (NYC) health authorities to support COVID-19 decision-making through modeling. Dr. Bershteyn also provided pro bono COVID-19 modeling support to in Memphis and Washington State.  She has contributed to COVID-19 prevention research through randomized trials of prophylaxis, treatment, and testing interventions, e.g., an ongoing RCT of navigation to COVID-19 testing in NYC public housing developments. Internationally, Dr. Bershteyn works on HIV/AIDS and TB has informed decision-making by the World Health Organization (WHO), PEPFAR, Global Fund, Gates Foundation, and fiscal and health authorities in the United States, eSwatini, Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
