Faculty & Staff

MPH Leadership, Core Faculty, and Administrative Team

The interdisciplinary MPH program team of practitioners and researchers bring expertise from biological, environmental, and social sciences, and in both laboratory and field research, including applied public health research in diverse community settings. Many of our faculty are experienced public health practitioners, bringing considerable “real-world” experience into the classroom, and facilitating engaged learning and applied research opportunities with community partners.

In addition to MPH faculty and staff, our courses involve more than 40 additional faculty across disciplines and sectors, drawing upon the breadth and depth of public health activities across the University and our network of external partners. We partner and engage with public health organizations and communities around the world to help solve some of the wicked challenges of our time, from hunger and obesity to antimicrobial resistance and tick-borne disease.
