Biography

Aimee J. Palumbo, PhD, MPH, joined the faculty of Temple University’s College of Public Health in August 2018. Prior to this she was a postdoctoral fellow with joint appointments at the Penn Injury Science Center at the University of Pennsylvania and the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and as adjunct teaching faculty at Drexel University. She received her doctoral degree from Drexel University’s Dornsife School of Public Health in 2016 with a focus on life course social exposures. She worked for three years at the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Bureau of Epidemiology managing public health investigations related to foodborne, waterborne, and healthcare-associated infection illnesses. The goal of Aimee’s research and teaching is to use the foundational principles of epidemiology to understand how social exposures, including where we live and where we work, influence multiple aspects of health. Her goal with teaching is to engage students with practical applications of epidemiologic concepts in order to solidify understanding and motivate students to answer questions that matter to them.
