Kamini Mallick, MS

Research Project Manager
Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences

Kamini Mallick is a Research Project Manager at the Prevention Research Center on Nutrition and Physical Activity at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The mission of the HPRC is to work with community partners to develop, evaluate, implement, and disseminate cost-effective strategies that will improve population nutrition and physical activity, reduce obesity, and chronic disease, and improve health equity.

Kamini leads the COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence Network Project, a CDC-funded initiative to improve access to COVID-19 information and the vaccine in hard-hit communities. Through partnerships with local community-based organizations in Lynn, Brockton, and Springfield, the goal of this project is to increase COVID-19 vaccine uptake among residents to thereby reduce infections, morbidity, and mortality among Black and Latinx populations, immigrants, and other underserved and marginalized groups in these communities.

Her previous research experience includes evaluating the types and efficacy of COVID-19 messages in local Boston-based immigrant communities and adjusting efforts to address misinformation in scientific, socially, and culturally appropriate ways.

Kamini holds a Master of Science degree in Medical Anthropology from Boston University School of Medicine and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biochemistry from Macalester College.
