EarthTalks on April 1: Utilizing Sensor Data for Environmental Health Exposure Assessment

Kirsten Koehler, an associate professor at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, will be giving a talk titled “Low-cost sensors for environmental health applications” on Monday, April 1 at 4 p.m. in the 112 Walker Building on the University Park campus. The talk will also be available through Zoom.

Koehler’s research focuses on improving exposure assessment methods to support occupational and public health policy. Her work aims to enhance spatiotemporal exposure assessment for air pollutants and climate-related exposures, with a particular interest in how air pollution affects individuals with pre-existing conditions like asthma or COPD. Additionally, she explores the potential of lower-cost sensor technologies to better understand exposure variations within urban areas.

The talk is part of the EarthTalks spring 2024 series, “Urban Systems Science,” which delves into the complexities of urban systems and the interactions between human and natural systems within city boundaries and between cities and rural environments.
