Guillermo Douglass-Jaimes

Guillermo Douglass-Jaimes is an Assistant Professor in the Environmental Analysis Program at Pomona College. His research focuses on the social and spatial determinants of health with special attention to place and neighborhood effects on health. Guillermo uses geospatial analysis, and qualitative research methods, to highlight localized health disparities often masked when narrow constructions of place as considered. His work is situated in global health equity and is driven by an interest and inquiry in how conceptions of place and identity can be products of social marginalization as well as sources for community resilience.  Guillermo’s work has entailed collaborations with environmental health scientists, social scientists and epidemiologists as well as community-based organizations working on environmental health and environmental justice issues.  He holds a PhD in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from the University of California, Berkeley.
