Emily F. Dauria, PhD, MPH

Assistant Professor of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences

Dr. Emily F. Dauria is behavioral scientist and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. Her research applies mixed methods to examine substance use, sexual and reproductive health, and violence victimization experienced by women and youth, especially those impacted by the carceral system. My research also explores how contact with the carceral system shapes disparities in these and other health outcomes.
