Dr Julia Fussell is a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Public Health at Imperial, a member of the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health and the NIHR-PHE Health Protection Research Units in Environmental Exposures and Health and Chemical and Radiation Threats and Hazards.

Through the analysis and synthesis of research results, she disseminates information on the toxicology and health effects of air pollution through peer reviewed articles and reviews, official statements for government agencies and systematic reviews for international public health agencies and research organisations including the World Health Organisation and US Health Effects Institute.
