Joan Casey received her doctoral degree from the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2014.  Her research focuses on using electronic health records and spatial statistics to study the relationship between emerging environmental exposures and population health. Joan has an interest in a range of exposures including unconventional natural gas and oil development, environmental noise pollution, and concentrated animal feeding operations. Her dissertation work suggests that living near industrial agriculture may put residents at risk for antibiotic-resistant infections. 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.
