Daniel Carrión is an environmental health scientist focused on the intersection of climate, energy, and health (in)equity. He conducts exposure science and environmental epidemiology of ambient temperature and air pollution in the United States and internationally. Broadly speaking, his goal is to understand the relationship between structural forms of inequality with exposure and health disparities to identify and support interventions. More specifically, he is interested in the role of the home and neighborhood environment as opportunities for intervention towards climate and health equity, largely focused on energy transitions.
Carrión received his BA from Ithaca College, an MPH from New York Medical College, a PhD from Columbia University, and postdoctoral training at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Beyond his research, Carrión is a senior fellow of the Agents of Change in Environmental Justice, a senior fellow of the Environmental Leadership Program, a fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine, and a governor-appointed member to the New York State Minority Health Council.
