Samantha (Sam) Hall is a PhD student in the Department of Environmental Health. With an interest in transmission of pathogens in food and water systems, Sam hopes to better understand health effects on workers and communities as impacted by food production practices. The relationships between food, climate change, and human health have broad impacts for both rural and urban populations, and Sam is curious about interventions that can create healthier, more accessible, and sustainable systems. While completing her Master of Public Health at BU, Sam worked with community organizations to understand safety protocols related to the COVID-19 pandemic in elementary schools, as well as what safe compost looks like for urban community gardeners. Before BU, Sam worked in wet lab settings studying antibiotic resistance and then cancer immunotherapy at academic institutions in San Diego, CA. She loves riding her bike, spending time in her garden, and learning about the plethora of ways we interact with microorganisms in our daily lives.
