Jacqueline Curtis is a Spatial Epidemiologist in the Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences. Dr. Curtis is an expert in Geographic Information Science (GISc) and mixed methods to study environment-health relationships, particularly in women and children. Her current projects focus on the use of geospatial technologies and spatial analysis in exposure assessment, health services delivery, and gene-environment interaction, as well as in developing methods for integrating local/expert knowledge within Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Throughout these projects, Dr. Curtis incorporates data from lived experience, local knowledge, and official sources to develop a more comprehensive evidence base to inform interventions.
