Research Instructor

Miranda Dally, MS is a research instructor and DrPH candidate at the Colorado School of Public Health’s Center for Health, Work & Environment and Department of Environmental and Occupational Health. Growing up in the agricultural communities in Northern California, she has seen firsthand the detritus effect climate change has on workers and their communities. As a co-founder of the Climate, Work & Health Initiative she is dedicated to keeping workers and their families safe, healthy, and productive by preventing and reducing health impacts from the changing climate. Her research examines the ways that changing occupational hazards due to climate change affect agricultural worker health and wellbeing, specifically how increases in occupational heat exposure lead to injury, illness, and impact the ability to work. She takes this research into practice by working closely with employees and their employers on ways to protect and sustain the health of workers who are responsible for the global food supply. In addition to this work, she serves as the lead biostatistician at the Center for Health, Work & Environment by providing analytical support to Center faculty and staff on a wide range of Total Worker Health® projects. When she is not immersed in data, Miranda enjoys exploring Colorado's peaks with her spouse, Matt and twins, Genevieve & Evelyn.
