    Collapse overview
    Dr. Burrows studies the impacts of climate change on human health and wellbeing. She is trained in mixed methods approaches and uses a combination of qualitative interviews and bigger data analyses to investigate the ways in which climate and weather-related extremes impact individual and community health. Dr. Burrows has interdisciplinary training in environmental epidemiology (PhD, Yale University School of the Environment) and social-behavioral sciences (MPH, Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health), which allows her to investigate global health issues from a unique perspective that incorporates sociocultural determinants of health and environmental exposures. As a postdoctoral fellow at Brown University, Dr. Burrows evaluated both the short- and long-term impacts of hurricanes on a range of health outcomes, including cardiovascular and respiratory hospitalizations and disability. Her current research is focused on the mental health impacts of extreme temperature.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
