Pricila Mullachery, PhD, MPH
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Pricila Mullachery, PhD, MPH, is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Urban Health Collaborative (UHC) in the Dornsife School of Public Health.
Dr. Mullachery completed her PhD in Health Policy at New York University in 2018. Her work focused on the effect of health care policies in the context of socioeconomic inequalities and its potential implications for disparities in health care utilization across different localities and social groups. In her doctoral work, Dr. Mullachery used a diverse analytical strategy to measure inequity and identify patterns of health care distribution in Brazil over a period of fifteen years, a period in which primary health care coverage was expanded to millions of Brazilians.
Dr. Mullachery joined the UHC in 2019. Previously, she worked for the Inter-American Development Bank where she examined health outcomes and health system performance in six Latin American and Caribbean countries. She also worked at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene where she used both survey data and vital statistics data to examine disparities in maternal and child health outcomes. Dr. Mullachery earned her degree in dental surgery from the University of Pernambuco (Brazil) and her Master in Science from the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz, Brazil).
