EHS Faculty

Environmental Health Sciences faculty are available for supervising dissertation research, serving as research rotation mentors, and serving as PhD committee members.

Faculty members in the Environmental Health Sciences Program utilize a wide range of tools to address problems central to the field, including exposure assessment, toxicology, disease ecology, and environmental epidemiology. Faculty research interests include infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, development, neurological disorders, and the impact of climate change on human health and disease.
Several departments in multiple schools participate in the program making this a truly University-wide enterprise. Departments from the Rollins School of Public Health include: Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Global Health, and Biostatistics and Bioinformatics; from the College of Arts and Sciences: Environmental Studies; and from the School of Medicine: Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Medicine, and Pediatrics. Faculty members within the Environmental Health Sciences Programs are leaders in the field and hold prestigious Center and Training Grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the Environmental Protection Agency. The wide range of faculty expertise provides a wealth of research experiences for students.  Click on the areas below for faculty listings.
