Sydney  Hubbard

Sydney is a doctoral candidate in the Environmental Health Sciences program in the Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health at Emory University. She worked as an Epidemiologist across a variety of settings and sectors broadly in infectious disease surveillance prior to returning to Emory in 2018 to pursue her doctorate. It was her work at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on a health impact evaluation of a water and sanitation (WASH) intervention in Lusaka, Zambia, that specifically led her to return to Emory to gain further training in WASH research and the environmental determinants of infectious disease. Her dissertation research focuses on the impact of weather on WASH interventions with a focus on a WASH intervention in a climate-vulnerable, coastal setting in Mozambique. She is a current research fellow in the Center for Global Safe Water and a former fellow in the Atlanta Science Communication Fellowship program. Within her department, she serves as the student co-chair of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Steering Committee.
