About Dr. Rachel Sippy:
Dr. Sippy is a postdoctoral researcher with SUNY Upstate Medical University and the University of Florida. Her work focuses on the role of climate and the environment in driving vectorborne and respiratory illnesses. She completed her Bachelor's degree in Genetics at Iowa State University in 2007, then worked as an Assistant Scientist managing a lab at the ISU Veterinary School, putting academic and practical skills into use to study Campylobacter in sheep. After deciding to continue with her studies in public health, she attended the University of Utah where she had the opportunity to work on influenza transmission, cancer patient outcomes and worked in the Galápagos studying the relationship between mosquitos and avian malaria. Rachel graduated with a Master's in Public Health in 2013. She received an NIH T32 training fellowship to complete her PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This allowed her to study vector-borne disease transmission with a focus on fine-scale climactic variability in Ecuador in collaboration with local hospitals. She completed her dissertation: Climate and Environmental Drivers of Dengue Fever in Rural Ecuador in the spring of 2018.
