Jane E. Clougherty, MSc, ScD

Professor, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Dornsife School of Public Health

Jane E. Clougherty, MSc ScD is a Professor at the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health. Dr. Clougherty completed her doctorate and post-doctoral training at the Harvard School of Public Health, was a Senior Research Scientist at New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene from 2008-2010, and Assistant Professor and Director of Exposure Science at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health from 2010-2016.

An exposure scientist and epidemiologist, Dr. Clougherty’s research focuses on social and psychosocial susceptibility to ambient environmental exposures, notably urban air pollution and temperature. She has designed and implemented large studies on intra-urban variation in air pollution and source apportionment, and developed methods for quantifying social stressor exposures for environmental epidemiology. She is Principal Investigator on several EPA- and NIH-funded studies, including an R01 using geographic information systems (GIS) to identify social and environmental exposures which may alter the efficacy of pharmaceutical interventions for asthma in clinical trials, a Health Effects Institute (HEI)-funded grant on combined effects of community stressors and pollutant exposures on cardiovascular event risk, and an R01 on extreme temperature events and children’s health, with variation by for social stressors and medical susceptibilities.

Dr. Clougherty currently serves as Chair of the Dornsife Executive Committee of the Faculty (ECF), and Director of the PhD program in Environmental and Occupational Health. She has served as a board member of the International Society for Exposure Science (ISES), as an Associate Editor or Editorial Board Member for several prominent journals in environmental health, is a member of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE), and was awarded the ISES Sally Liu Award for an Outstanding New Investigator in 2012.
