Jessica H. Leibler, DrPH ScM is an environmental epidemiologist in the Department of Environmental Health at BUSPH, and her research focuses on environmental exposures experienced by disadvantaged populations in the US, including agricultural workers and the homeless.

Dr. Leibler has studied antibiotic resistant bacterial transmission among industrial food animal workers in the Midwestern United States. She has published studies identifying risk of avian influenza infection among industrial poultry workers and farm-to-farm transmission risk of avian influenza in the US. Dr. Leibler has also lead research on antibiotic resistant bacterial infections and hygiene practices among people experiencing homelessness in Boston. Dr. Leibler is actively engaged in teaching and mentoring students, and teaches the MPH core course "Introduction to Quantitative Methods in Public Health" (PH717) at SPH.
