Master of Science: Researcher, founder of Noise and the City
Erica is a doctoral candidate at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Her doctoral thesis, “Noise and Health: Exposures, Experiments, and Epidemiology,” takes a deeper look at community noise issues and their negative impacts on cardiovascular and mental health. She is particularly interested in understanding characteristics of sound beyond the typically reported A-weighted decibel, noise perception, and community noise policy. She holds an MS in Economics and Urban Planning and a BS in both Mathematics and Economics. She is very excited about creating Greater Boston’s first neighborhood noise report card.
