Programs: Public Health
Greetings! I hold faculty appointments at three separate Tufts University schools. My primary appointment is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, where I've taught since 1992. In 1996 I was appointed Lecturer in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (now Family Medicine and Public Health) at Tufts Medical School and in 1999 I was appointed Lecturer at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. In 2002, I helped start the Graduate Certificate Program in Epidemiology. I currently am the Director of this program. In 2005, I was appointed the Concentration Leader of the Epidemiology and Biostatistics track in the Master of Public Health (MPH) Program, which is offered by the Public Health and Professional Degrees Program on the Medical School campus. I also currently serve on the MPH Academic Affairs Committee.
