Mohammad Howard-Azzeh

B.Sc, M.Sc


I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Population Medicine under the supervision of Dr. David Pearl. My research focuses on assessing the impact of state legislation, socioeconomic characteristics (income disparity, drug prescription rates, urbanicity, etc.), and dog characteristics (weight, age, reproductive status, etc.) on the odds of an accidental opioid or cannabinoid exposure event in companion dogs. We are also performing geospatial and temporal analyses to identify when and where there is the greatest risk of an opioid or cannabinoid exposure event.



Research Interests

Mohammad's research focuses on the identification of risk factors associated with accidental exposure of opioids and cannabis to companion dogs.
