Emily Mosites

Epidemiology Manager, Multnomah County, Oregon

Emily Mosites holds a PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Washington and an MPH in Epidemiology of Microbial Disease from Yale University. Emily was a START Center Research Assistant from START's inception in 2011 until 2013. Her research focused on the field of One Health (the study of the health intersections between humans, animals, and the environment), with an emphasis on child nutrition outcomes. After finishing her doctoral studies, she completed a one year post-doctoral fellowship with Washington State University’s Paul G. Allen School of Global Animal Health. She then worked with the CDC's Arctic Investigations Program in Anchorage. In this role, Emily focused on the infectious disease public health challenges of rural Alaska, evaluating and understanding health disparities, and collaborating with international partners across the circumpolar north.

Reflecting on her time with the START Center, Emily shared that, "If you want to link scientific concepts into global public health problem-solving, START is the place to be. During my time as a research assistant with START, I had the incredible opportunity to apply analytic, communication, and writing skills to projects that I felt passionate about."

Emily currently works as an Epidemiology Manager for Multnomah County in Oregon.
