EarthTalks: Utilizing Sensor Data for Assessing Environmental Health Exposure – April 1

Kirsten Koehler, an associate professor at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, is set to present a talk titled “Low-cost sensors for environmental health applications” at 4 p.m. on Monday, April 1st at 112 Walker Building on the University Park campus. Her presentation will also be available via Zoom. During her talk, Koehler will explore the growing use of sensors in our everyday lives due to the Internet of Things (IoT). She will discuss how sensor data can be used in environmental health applications, covering areas such as pollutant emissions, exposure to health effects and monitoring approaches for air pollution exposures.

Koehler’s research mainly focuses on developing more accurate exposure assessment methods to inform occupational and public health policy. Her work aims to improve spatiotemporal exposure assessment for air pollutants and climate-related exposures, with a particular focus on how these exposures affect individuals with existing diseases like asthma or COPD. Additionally, she is interested in using lower-cost sensor technologies to better understand the variability in exposures within urban areas.

Koehler’s talk is part of the EarthTalks spring 2024 series on “Urban Systems Science,” which explores the complexities of urban systems and the interactions between human and natural systems within cities and their surrounding rural environment.
