Krista Neumann is a PhD student in Epidemiology at Berkeley’s School of Public Health. Her goal is to apply her training in Mathematics to social epidemiological questions focused on reducing health disparities. Neumann’s current research interests aim to answer the causal question: which policies, programs and interventions most successfully reduce systematically embedded barriers to health for marginalized and low-income communities. She’s particularly interested in food and nutrition insecurity as a specific outcome, as well as ways to overcome obstacles which prevent evidence from affecting meaningful policy changes. Neumann holds a Bachelors of Mathematics from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
