Anders Erickson obtained his PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies, an epidemiology focused program with the Division of Medical Sciences and the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria, and his MSc in Community Health Sciences at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). His research interests are varied, but predominantly focus on the spatial and environmental epidemiology of non-communicable diseases and the social determinants of health. His PhD dissertation used small area spatial and multilevel analyses to model the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes such as low birth weight and gestational diabetes relating to air pollution exposure and its possible interaction with social and behavioural factors. Anders is currently a post-doctoral research and teaching fellow with the School of Population and Public Health (SPPH) at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
