Justin Remais is Professor and Chair of the Division of Environmental Health Sciences at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. An engineer by training, Prof. Remais’ research uses statistical, mathematical, and computational approaches to study the impact of environmental change on the dynamics of infectious disease transmission. He leads a cluster of studies examining the spread of West Nile virus, TB, leptospirosis, schistosomiasis, coccidioidomycosis, and enteric infections as they respond to rapid urbanization, industrialization, migration, changes in water resources, and a changing and more variable climate, among other factors. He has led (as PI or co-PI) >$13 million in extramural research projects since being appointed to the Berkeley faculty, including collaborative research in California, China, Ecuador, and Senegal. He serves as Deputy Editor of PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases and Academic Editor of PLoS Global Public Health. Prof. Remais received his MS in Civil and Environmental Engineering and a PhD in Environmental Health Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley.
