Karen Levy is Assistant Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health at Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health. Her work explores how environmental change affects transmission and incidence of infectious diseases, focusing on the ecology and epidemiology of waterborne disease. She is currently involved in research on transmission of diarrheal pathogens, household water quality, impacts of climate on waterborne disease, and the role of food production systems on the evolution and spread of antibiotic resistance. Northern coastal Ecuador has been a focal point of her research since 2003, but she has also worked in Guatemala, Micronesia, The Phillippines, Mexico, and California, and is also currently working on a study of the water distribution system in Atlanta, GA.
