Dr. Corinna Noel

The Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has recently welcomed many new faculty members to our academic departments, each one bringing a unique set of skills and experience that enriches our college every day. In this Q&A series, you'll get to know their interests, expertise and more.

This Q&A features Dr. Corinna Noel, assistant professor of practice in the Department of Public and Ecosystem Health.

What has been your academic/career path leading to Cornell?

As an undergraduate mathematics major, I was always looking for a way to connect my quantitative skills to the field of human health. After a summer research experience at Cornell, I decided to come to Cornell for my Ph.D. and study the taste system and its connection to obesity (using my statistics skills to analyze all the data). While at Cornell, I discovered the field of epidemiology, which was a perfect combination for my quantitative background and desire to understand and improve population health. The rest is history! I completed a postdoc in epidemiology at the Brown University School of Public Health, and then returned to the area to teach and work as an epidemiologist in Cayuga County. I am excited to be joining the Department of Public and Ecosystem Health as an assistant professor of practice, and apply my interdisciplinary training and experience to mentor and teach students and continue to engage with community partners on local public health initiatives.
