Amanda Weaver

PhD Student




I’m Amanda Weaver and I’m a PhD student in Environmental Health Science working with Dr. Remais at UC Berkeley. I grew up in Philadelphia but went to Texas for undergrad at Rice, studying Ecology and Evolution. My thesis was on the effects of predator exclusion on the phenotype of the galls of gall wasps. After graduation, I wanted to bring a public perspective into my studies and got my MPH from Columbia. I had the chance to work on tick-borne disease on Staten Island, focusing on the impact of weather on tick questing behavior. At Berkeley, I’ll be studying how human action impacts infectious disease dynamics.
