Karin Yeatts

Air pollution, climate change-related health effects, and respiratory disease have been the three major themes of Karin's research. As one of few faculty members in the UNC Department of Epidemiology who focus on respiratory disease and air pollution, she has led multiple large interdisciplinary teams to investigate research questions related to those topics.
Her teaching philosophy is based upon the principle of active learning. She applies state-of-the-art pedagogical concepts such as case-based modules and “flipping the classroom” to her courses.
She has served on 18 graduate student committees across three departments (including one master’s and six doctoral students in Epidemiology) and has mentored several independent student research projects in ESE and Epidemiology.
