Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine

University of Iowa

Jacob Simmering is an assistant professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Occupational Medicine at the University of Iowa. My graduate school training was a mixture of epidemiology, health economics, and statistical methods and current areas of active research include the effects of the environment, especially weather and pollution, on health outcomes and pharmacoepidemiology and neurodegenerative diseases.

My non-research interests include wondering about the effects of the built environment in cities, biking, reading, his toddler, doomscrolling on Twitter, and saying that I’ll someday learn Julia.
