Daniel Simon is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology and is affiliated with the CU Population Center at the Institute of Behavioral Science.

His previous research has explored the relationship between climate variability and migration from Mexico, as well as recent trends in US suicide, drug-, and alcohol-related mortality. This work has been featured in various journals, including Population and Environment, International Journal of Epidemiology, Biodemography and Social Biology, and Global Environmental Change.
