EOHS Faculty and Staff


EOHS houses a multidisciplinary faculty comprised of public health professionals with unique backgrounds, including industrial hygiene, medicine, environmental health, engineering, toxicology, and chemistry. Their research helps us protect children’s health, prevent occupational injury among construction and farm workers, monitor water quality, design safe drinking water systems, and assess the risk pollutants pose to humans at all phases of development.

EOHS frequently recruits accomplished professionals for adjunct appointments, further enhancing the diversity and expertise of the division. Thanks to the large number of ongoing research projects in EOHS, interested students will find ample opportunities for collaboration and financial assistance.
