Postdoctoral scholar, University of California, Berkeley

Joan Casey received her doctoral degree from the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She now works as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California at Berkeley. Her research uses electronic medical records to study the effects of environmental exposures on population health. Specifically, she has evaluated associations between industrial agriculture and antibiotic-resistant infections and unconventional natural gas development and a range of health outcomes. Joan received a B.S. in Biological and Environmental Engineering from Cornell University and an M.A. in Applied Physiology from Teachers College at Columbia University. In her spare time, Joan enjoys coaching track and field, listening to audiobooks, and traveling, which she hopes to one day reconcile with her concerns about global sustainability.
