Eyal Oren is an Associate Professor, and infectious disease and social epidemiologist at the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Graduate School of Public Health, San Diego State University (SDSU).

His research group focuses on community-engaged approaches to addressing population health disparities, with a focus on respiratory infections.  The group works on multidisciplinary, collaborative projects that are innovative and emphasize new tools and technologies.
