Dear Prospective Student,

Thanks for your interest in doing graduate work in the Spatial Health Research Group, which is directed by me, Michael Emch. We do work in health and medical geography and spatial epidemiology mostly on infectious diseases. I am recruiting new PhD students for the August 2024 incoming class.   You should log onto the Geography Department prospective student website which has directions on how to apply.  Please also have a look at the Carolina Population Center Population Sciences Training Program website. Most of my PhD students are part of that training program.  Thanks for your interest.


Michael Emch
