Keith Spangler is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Environmental Health and the Biostatistics and Epidemiology Data Analytics Center (BEDAC) at Boston University. His research interests are in the health effects of climate change and its disproportionate impacts on socially vulnerable communities.
His recent work includes assessing spatiotemporal changes in heat-related mortality, developing a data repository of spatially resolved heat metrics, and improving exposure measurements for analyzing social determinants of health at various scales. He holds a Ph.D. in earth, environmental, and planetary sciences and an Sc.M. in epidemiology from Brown University.
