Air pollution kills 3,000,000 people per year. So how can we stop it?
Ambient air pollution causes ~4% of total deaths in the United States. Our group assesses air pollution levels and the human health impacts caused by them, focusing on air pollution monitoring, environmental exposure modeling, and aerosol measurement and control technology. Most recently, we are developing air quality monitoring strategies to collect high quality air pollution data, and producing accurate air pollution exposure estimates for health studies in both ambient and occupational settings using advanced statistical and machine learning methods.
How do we science?
Sampling pollutants in the atmosphere
Modeling the levels of air pollution that people are exposed to over space and time
Leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve existing models and allow new insights
