Leah  Moubadder

Leah Moubadder, MPH, is a fourth-year doctoral student in the Epidemiology Department at Emory Rollins School of Public Health. Her overarching research interests are environmental health, structural inequities, breast cancer, and molecular epidemiology. The primary goal of her research is to understand how environmental toxicant exposure may stem from structural inequalities and investigate the contribution of environmental pollutants on the development of aggressive breast cancer and survival. As part of her dissertation work, Leah leveraged spatial and causal inference methods to examine historical and contemporary redlining as a driver of air quality and disparate breast cancer outcomes. She also explores the effect of the social and physical environment on the epigenome.
