    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Benmarhnia finished his PhD jointly from The University of Montreal and Paris Sud and finished two Master’s degrees, one in Environmental Health Sciences Engineering from the French School of Higher Education in Public Health and another in Pharmacy and Ecotoxicology from Montpellier University in France. He completed his BA in Environmental Sciences from Montpellier University. He has therefore developed a very rich and diverse educational profile that gave him the ability to explore cross-disciplinary fields of public health and other disciplines. To further his training, he was an environmental scientist on contaminated soil with the French Railway Company, followed by a Health Scientist position with the French National Institute of Health Education and Prevention, and most recently was a post-doc at McGill University with the Institute for Health and Social Policy.

    Dr. Benmarhnia has a unique niche of combining expertise in epidemiology study design and health risk assessment with climate and econometric models, in addition to clear understanding of health policy and a passion for social science and equity as they relate to public health.

    He joins the faculty at the University of California, San Diego as an Assistant Professor in both the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography-CASPO, where he will share his unique expertise in combining atmospheric, econometric, and epidemiologic modelling, as well as contribute as a lecturer in courses on environmental epidemiology (introductory to advanced), the impact of climate change on health, and advanced methods in epidemiology among others.
