STUDENT. PREVENTION. PREDICTION MODEL DESIGNER.
Research into the causes of foodborne illnesses from shellfish takes Environmental Health and Engineering doctoral student Benjamin Davis to coastal estuaries in search of answers: His goal? To reduce shellfish-related illnesses and outbreaks in the U.S.
He’s working to develop a prediction model to help shellfish harvesters prevent contaminated seafood from reaching U.S. consumers. Problem-solvers like Benjamin are vital members of the Bloomberg School’s interdisciplinary student/faculty teams committed to advancing research and discovering new ways to combat disease.
Every year, scholarships and fellowships make it possible for students like Benjamin, a CLF Lerner Fellow, put their public health passion into action.
