Director, Epidemiology Data Resource Center
Kirsten Beyer received her PhD in Geography and her MPH in Global Health from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. She is a health geographer interested in human-environment interaction as it relates to public health, with environment conceived broadly as including the physical (built and natural) and social environments. Her work includes disease mapping, social epidemiology, and mixed methods approaches that aim to identify spatial patterns of disease and injury and understand the complex human-environment processes that create them. Her primary research interest is in women’s environmental health, particularly as it relates to intimate partner and domestic violence and associated co-morbidities. She has a strong interest in the role of community engagement in research and teaching and partners with local community organizations in undertaking her work. She is a member of the MCW Injury Research Center Research Committee, a member of the MCW Cancer Center, and an MCW Clinical Research Scholar.
