Dr. Song Liang will join the Department of Environmental and Global Health as an Associate Professor beginning July 1, 2012. Dr. Liang’s research interests include environmental epidemiology, risk assessment, and dynamic modeling of water-associated and zoonotic infectious diseases (WZIDs). His research programs are unified by underlying interests in understanding environmental impacts on the transmission of WZIDs, assessing human health risk, quantifying disease burden, and evaluating environment-oriented intervention and surveillance strategies. He is also interested in socio-environmental determinants underlying emerging and re-emerging environmentally-mediated infectious diseases. EGH faculty and staff look forward to future collaboration with Dr. Liang.
