Applied research in water, sanitation, hygiene, and health
Matthew Freeman is an Assistant Professor in Environmental Health at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University
Team members include current staff, MPH, and doctoral students interested in issues relating to enteric disease, behavioral drivers of sanitation and hygiene, school health, epidemiological methods, infectious disease modeling, and menstrual hygiene management among others.
Our work focuses on enteric disease transmission, behavioral outcomes, equity and gender, and educational outcomes. We employ a number of methods to address these questions, including cluster-randomized trials, qualitative research, process evaluations, disease modeling, and formative research. We have ongoing collaborations with CARE, Save the Children, UNICEF, WaterAid, among many others.
