Description

Dr. Karen Levy is an Associate Professor of Environmental Health at the Rollins School of Public Health. She earned her PhD (2007), Master of Public Health (2006), and Master of Science (2002) degrees from UC Berkeley, and her Bachelors degree (1995) from Stanford University. Dr. Levy's research explores how environmental factors affect the transmission and incidence of infectious diseases, focusing on the ecology and epidemiology of enteric (food and waterborne) diseases. Her interdisciplinary research group uses environmental microbiology and environmental epidemiology methods to study water quality, food safety, interactions between enteric pathogens and the infant gut microbiome, and the impact of climate and land use change on the transmission of diarrheal diseases. Her research has been supported by the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Fogarty International Center, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and other agencies. Dr. Levy is co-director of the Global Environmental Health MPH program, a faculty fellow at the Emory Global Health Institute, a core faculty member at the Center for Global Safe WASH, and a core member of the Climate @Emory initiative.  She is also a 2017-18 AAAS Leshner Public Engagement Fellow.
