Description

  • Long-term Air Pollution and Incident Dementia in U.S.
  • Liuhua Shi, ScD (Assistant Professor of Environmental Health, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University)
  • Zoom Link (registration required)
  • Add to Google Calendar
  • Recording will be posted to the M-LEEaD YouTube Channel
  • Organized by the Integrated Health Sciences Core of the Michigan Center on Lifestage Environmental Exposures and Disease (M-LEEaD)

Dr. Shi’s research focuses on employing massive datasets, including satellite-retrieved high resolution exposures and health data, to investigate how climate change and air pollution influence seniors’ health. More specifically, her research focuses on:

  • application of remote sensing in environmental exposure modeling (e.g., predicting high-resolution PM2.5, ozone, NO2, and temperature);
  • estimating the health consequences of exposure to air pollution and climate change;
  • estimating the link between climate change and air quality, and the mediated health impacts;
  • estimating the joint and independent health effects of air pollutant mixtures;
  • statistical modeling, e.g., causal modeling and big data approach.
