Daniel Carrión completed his PhD in Environmental Health Sciences (Climate and Health) in July 2019. His doctoral thesis examined the impact of household air pollution on upper respiratory microbial carriage of infants, as well the socioecological determinants of biomass combustion amongst families in rural Ghana. He is now a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In his current role, he is working to refine large-scale exposure models of temperature and air pollution using remotely sensed data, and conducting epidemiological analyses with those exposure datasets. He received a BA from Ithaca College and an MPH from New York Medical College. He also serves on the Minority Health Council for the New York State Department of Health. He is currently a member of the New York State Minority Health Council, a student member of the New York Academy of Medicine, and a Senior Fellow of the Environmental Leadership Program. Ultimately, his research goals are to inform policy and practice towards environmental health equity.
