Erich J. Petushek, Ph.D is an Assistant Professor specializing in Health Risk Analytics in the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University. He completed his PhD in Human Factors (2014) with emphasis on health and data science. He has also helped secure $1,045,800 in competitive funding (NSF, HRSA, MDHHS), publishing 22 peer-reviewed articles on topics in health, risk communication, and medical decision-making. He has taught 5 courses including biomechanics, exercise physiology and kinesiology labs and mentored diverse graduates and undergraduates at three public universities, and serves as a non-profit board member for helping at-risk youth/teens. His research program aims to train students in methods that reduce modifiable health disorders and health disparities, while promoting community health engagement and applied science innovation.
