Dr. Weichenthal is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Occupational Health. His research program is dedicated to identifying and evaluating environmental risk factors for chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. To support this objective, Dr. Weichenthal develops new approaches to population-based exposure assessment and examines how the urban built environment influences environmental exposures at both the individual and population-level. His past studies have examined the health effects of air pollution from biomass burning, traffic, as well as the oxidative potential of fine particulate air pollution. His current research is focused on the use of deep learning models in estimating environmental exposures on both a local and global scale.
