About Meghan Mason, PhD

My research interests are in zoonotic diseases, infections that transfer from animal to human populations, and in the health of marginalized urban populations. My passion for these two topics stemmed from my time in Kenya and Chile during my MPH and PhD programs. Abroad, I am focused on the importance of free-roaming dogs in the transmission of infectious diseases, and the perceptions of the role of these animals in urban communities. In the Twin Cities, I am interested in better understanding the burden of disease in individuals experiencing homelessness. In the classroom, you will primarily find me teaching Biostatistics and Epidemiology. I am eager to work with students in strengthening their quantitative skills and translating numbers into meaningful public health messages.
