Ariel Muñoz, MPH is a PHI/CDC Epidemiology Fellow in the Enteric Diseases Laboratory Branch (EDLB) based at CDC in Atlanta. She holds an MPH in Infectious Disease and Vaccinology from the University of California, Berkeley and a Bachelor of Science in Global Disease Biology and Statistics from the University of California, Davis. Most recently, Ariel worked as a data analyst and manuscript writer at the Universidade Federal Fluminense in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where she collaborated with a team of microbiologists who focused on studying the molecular epidemiology and risk factors for Staphylococcus aureus infection among residents of disenfranchised communities. Ariel has also worked in monitoring COVID-19 prospective cohort studies in the San Fransisco Bay Area in collaboration with the City of Berkeley Department of Public Health. In EDLB, Ariel will work closely with PulseNet International to build sustainable capacity for Whole Genome Sequencing as a routine molecular surveillance tool for enteric pathogens and antimicrobial resistance.

The PHI/CDC Global Health Fellowship Program is implemented for CDC by the Public Health Institute and its partner Consortium of Universities for Global Health.
