Emily Dauria, PhD, MPH

About Me:
Dr. Dauria approaches her work with a desire to shed light on and address social and structural determinants shaping health disparities experienced by individuals disproportionately impacted and surveilled by the carceral system.

Dr. Dauria is a behavioral scientist and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. Her research applies mixed methods to examine substance use, sexual and reproductive health, and intimate partner violence experienced by women and youth, especially those impacted by the carceral system. Dr. Dauria’s research also seeks to explore and address how contact with the carceral system shapes disparities in these and other health outcomes. She currently serves as the Principal Investigator on several NIH and foundation grants in this vein.
