Areas of Interest

Geographical Information Systems, air pollution monitoring, environment and health, spatial statistics, health geography. 


I am an MSc in Geography Student, in the Environment and Health Collaborative Specialization offered by the School of Environment. I am interested in monitoring and modelling the spatial distribution and human exposure to airborne Volatile Organic Compounds, some of which are carcinogenic, and whether these air pollutants are geographically correlated to vulnerable communities.

My interdisciplinary research will integrate Geographic Information Systems, chemical laboratory work and fieldwork to understand how air pollution is spatially distributed.
