Rogawski McQuade, Elizabeth T. (Liz), Ph.D., M.S.P.H.

RogawskiElizabeth-headshot-webDr. Rogawski McQuade is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences and the Division of Infectious Diseases & International Health, Department of Medicine. She received her PhD in Epidemiology from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with a focus in infectious disease epidemiology and international health. Her research interests are in pediatric enteric disease in low-resource settings. Specifically, she focuses on the complex interactions between early childhood diarrhea, enteropathogen infections, environmental enteropathy, antibiotic use, and their effects on child health and development. The majority of her fieldwork has been based in South Africa and India. As a faculty fellow in the Center for Global Health, she works with a multidisciplinary team of collaborators and students to study the effectiveness of a point-of-use water treatment technology to prevent child stunting in rural South Africa. She is also interested in developing novel causal inference-based methods to generate epidemiologic evidence that is relevant to public health interventions and policy.
