Mark A. Woodin
Senior Lecturer, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Research Assistant Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Senior Lecturer, Department of Public Health and Community Medicine


Greetings! I hold faculty appointments at three separate Tufts University schools. My primary appointment is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, where I've taught since 1992. In 1996, I was appointed Lecturer in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (now Public Health and Community Medicine) at Tufts Medical School and in 1999, I was appointed Lecturer at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. In 2002, I became the director of the Graduate Certificate Program in Epidemiology. From 2005 to 2012, I was the Concentration Leader of the Epidemiology and Biostatistics track in the Master of Public Health (MPH) Program, which is offered by the Public Health and Professional Degrees Program on the Medical School campus. I am the Director of the Bachelors-MPH dual degree program which allows Tufts undergraduates to earn both their Bachelors and MPH degrees in five years.
