Trained as a social demographer (in part by Professor Charles Hirschman during his years at Cornell), Win Brown has worked since the early 1980s in a variety of applied public health settings, mostly in the developing world. He spent nine years as a full faculty member at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health, where he taught and advised cohorts of MPH and PhD students, many of whom have succeeded in international public health and academic careers. In his current position as Senior Program Officer for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Family Planning Strategy, he is responsible for conceptualizing, funding, and managing grants that contribute to the global measurement agenda in family planning and reproductive health.
