Air pollution is a long-lasting threat to human health. Decades of research by environmental scientists has produced persuasive evidence that air pollution presents a variety of health hazards to human health.

However, emerging evidence suggests not everyone is affected in the same way. For example, certain groups of people, such as children and pregnant women, are more vulnerable to air pollution than the general population. Therefore, we need better methods to measure exposure at the individual level.

Scientists have applied land-use regression modeling – a method some believe can advance efforts to predict the effects of exposure – in many health studies over the past 20 years.

Zhenchun Yang, postdoctoral researcher in the Global Health Research Center’s Exposure Biology and Chemistry Laboratory, will talk on developing air pollution models in the U.K. and China from his own experiences over the past five years.
