Maia Scarpetta, MPH

PhD Student

Education: Reed College (BS, Psychology); University of New Mexico (MPH)

Research Interests: My interests are centered on the intersection of infectious disease and social epidemiology. While working as a COVID-19 epidemiologist in the Bay Area, I became specifically focused on how social determinants of health haveinfluenced COVID-19 health outcomes in the U.S. and globally. As a doctoral student, I hope to investigate the impact of infectious diseases on communities affected by climate change, political unrest, and social inequality.
