Jaime Madrigano to Co-chair EPA Climate Change Subcommittee


Associate professor Jaime Madrigano, ScD, MPH, has been selected to serve as co-chair of the U.S. EPA's Board of Scientific Counselors Climate Change Subcommittee. Madrigano will provide guidance to EPA's Office of Research and Development on building climate change research capacity and integrating climate change across the overall ORD research portfolio by leading working meetings of the subcommittee and drafting reports.

Madrigano, a Bloomberg Associate Professor of American Health, is an environmental epidemiologist committed to research that advances holistic, equitable solutions to protect the public from the growing threat of climate change. Her research examines how environmental pollution and extreme weather—alone and in combination with neighborhood and socioeconomic factors—impact population health. Her work emphasizes environmental justice with the goal of reducing population-wide environmental health disparities.
“We are thrilled that Dr. Jaime Madrigano has been selected to serve on the EPA’s Climate Change Subcommittee,” says Marsha Wills-Karp, PhD, chair of the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering. “She will contribute greatly to EPA’s efforts of identifying equitable policies to mitigate climate change-induced health impacts.”

Environmental Health and Engineering is a cross-divisional department spanning the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Whiting School of Engineering. This hybrid department is uniquely designed to lead pioneering research and prepare the next generation of scholars to solve critical and complex issues at the interface of public health and engineering.
