Professor, University of California, Berkeley
As a professor at UC Berkeley, Rachel Morello-Frosch’s work focuses on how environmental chemicals and air pollution affect human health and how climate change disproportionately impacts communities of color and low income groups. She collaborates frequently with community-based groups to design and carry out scientific work to ensure that her research is rigorous, relevant, and reaches decision-makers in ways that improve policies to protect human health. To her current role, Morello-Frosch brings over ten years of experience as a professor and has authored dozens of articles.
Morello-Frosch earned her BS in Development Studies from UC Berkeley, her MPH in Epidemiology & Biostatistics from UC Berkeley and her PhD in Environmental Health Science from the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley.
