Danielle Medgyesi

Danielle Medgyesi

PhD student, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

Danielle is currently researching exposure to arsenic and uranium in drinking water and the risks of cardiovascular and chronic kidney disease in California. She also has an interest in household air pollution. 

 
Kevin Patterson

Kevin Patterson

PhD student, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

Kevin's work focuses on environmental justice in American Indian and Native communities.

 
Marisa Sobel

Marisa Sobel

PhD student, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

Marisa’s research focuses on the association between multi-metal exposure and chronic lung disease in adult populations and working to untangle the mechanisms of action.

 

Raenita Spriggs

PhD student, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health
