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

Kirsten Koehler, a professor at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, will be presenting a talk titled “Low-cost sensors for environmental health applications” on Monday, April 1st, at 4 p.m. in the 112 Walker Building on the University Park campus. The talk will also be available via Zoom. In her presentation, Koehler will discuss the growing use of sensors in our daily lives due to the internet of things. She will explore how sensor data can be used in environmental health applications, including areas such as pollutant emissions and exposure to health effects.

Koehler’s research primarily focuses on improving exposure assessment methods to inform occupational and public health policy. Her work aims to enhance spatiotemporal exposure assessment for air pollutants and climate-related exposures, particularly how these exposures impact individuals with existing diseases like asthma or COPD. Additionally, she is interested in using lower-cost sensor technologies to better understand variations in exposures within urban areas.

The EarthTalks spring 2024 series on “Urban Systems Science” is featuring this talk by Koehler as one of its presentations. This series explores the complexities of urban systems and the interactions between human and natural systems within cities and their surrounding rural environment.
