Jill Baumgartner and her research group focus on understanding what factors influence people's exposure to environmental pollutants, their impact on health, and interventions to address them. They design studies that involve measurement of pollution exposures and provide unique data sets to address grand challenges in global environmental health. These projects involve interdisciplinary collaborations to answer questions like:
- What is the impact of improved energy technology, housing, and transportation policies on health?
- Are pollutants from different sources (e.g., wood combustion, traffic, industry) more harmful to health?
- How do early exposures to environmental pollutants impact disease development later in life?
