#WeAreEmoryEPI: Meet Cameron Goetgeluck!

Category : #WeAreEmoryEPI

Meet Cameron Goetgeluck! Cameron is a first-year MPH Candidate in Environmental Health & Epidemiology! Let’s see why he decided to come to Rollins!


Tell us about your academic history/where you went to school.

I attended the University of South Florida, majoring in Cell & Molecular Biology and minoring in Emergency Management.

 

What are your primary research interests?

I am interested in the environment’s role in disease transmission, and I would like to use that intersection to aid in outbreak investigations and study how disease strains evolve over time using epi-phylogenetics to inform control measures. I am also interested in emerging infectious diseases and exploring how exposure to toxicants can facilitate disease manifestation.

 

Are there any exciting projects that you are currently working on that you’d like to share with us?

I am working with an Environmental Health professor–Dr. Mike Caudle–on how toxicants can impact nerve development. I am also working on a project focused on defining risk perception and the disparate impacts that hurricanes in South Florida can have.

 

What is your favorite part about earning your MPH at Emory?

My favorite part about being at Rollins is being able to engage with world-class faculty that offer countless opportunities for students to participate and learn from. I also get to be part of a diverse cohort!

 

What are three fun facts that you want people to know about you?
  1. I have a twin.
  2. I’ve both cliff jumped and hang glided before.
  3. Thanks to TicketMaster, I waited in lines for hours to get tickets to a Taylor Swift concert.

Thanks for talking with us, Cameron! Tune in next week to see who we talk to next!
