Daniel Westreich, PhD, is assistant professor of epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health.
Westreich recently was appointed to the Editorial Board of the journal Epidemiology and was invited to serve as section editor in methods for Current Epidemiology Reports.
At the Gillings School, he researches HIV and its intersection with women’s reproductive health and chronic disease. He also develops epidemiologic methods for implementation science, and currently serves as associate editor for the American Journal of Epidemiology.
Westreich is no stranger to good research. As a doctoral student in the Gillings School’s epidemiology department – the same department where he is now a faculty member – he earned nine unique research-related awards. These include the Bernard G. Greenberg Award for Excellence in Doctoral Research and the Barbara Sorenson Hulka Dissertation Award.
“I’m honored and pleased to serve in an editorial capacity for these journals,” Westreich shared. “I’m hoping to help make epidemiologic methods as clear and intuitive as possible.”
