Summary

 

Summary

Our research focuses on exposure to, and health effects of, environmental, behavioural, nutritional, and metabolic risk factors and their interventions at the population level.  The research activities routinely combine concepts, data, and methods from a range of environmental, health, and quantitative sciences with a systems perspective.  We collect and analyze primary field data on environmental risk factors (primarily air pollution).  We also develop and apply analytical models to combinations of primary and secondary data to estimate health effects of risk factor exposures and interventions.  You can learn about our past and ongoing studies, and see their results and publications, through the Environment and Global Health Research Group page.
