Jaime Madrigano is an associate policy researcher at the RAND Corporation. She applies epidemiological methods to evaluate the environmental and social determinants of health. Her prior work has examined adverse health impacts resulting from exposure to air pollution and extreme weather, focusing on vulnerable populations. Madrigano is also interested in how people perceive risk as it relates to climate change, public health, and health care decision-making, and has conducted research on framing climate change as a public health issue. Prior to joining RAND, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia University's Earth Institute and was an assistant professor at Rutgers University. Madrigano received her Sc.D. in epidemiology and environmental health from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
