Chair, Env. and Occ. Health Sciences
Professor, Env. and Occ. Health Sciences (Primary department)
My teaching reflects my general interest in exposure assessment, instrumentation for environmental air sampling and physical agents. I teach classes on environmental and occupational exposure sciences, exposure assessment for air pollution, chemical and physical agents, and chemical sampling methods. My research program focuses mainly on ambient air pollution exposure assessment, and developing novel real time and optical measurement instruments. The Optical Remote Sensing Laboratory (ORS lab) is devoted to sampling techniques that use electromagnetic radiation (e.g. ultraviolet, visible, infrared light, or lasers,) to identify and measure environmental pollution at locations distant from the instrument. These instruments operate by passing light beams through the air and can measure trace contaminants directly in the beam path. ORS instruments can sample over paths from a few meters to several kilometers long. We have done extensive work developing these tools to scan an area and map contaminant concentrations. We have two ORS infrared instruments used for measuring gases, and a new LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) device for measuring aerosols. A second lab is investigating other novel sampling methods. We developed and tested a heart rate controlled sampling pump that changes flow rate in proportion to a person's breathing rate, to account for increased exposure due to exercise and physical labor. We also are working on optical methods for sampling exhaled breath (biological monitoring) and on an instrument that can measure chemicals on skin and other surfaces.

Projects

1. LIDAR measurements of pesticide spray drift

We are assessing the impact of spray drift from farms on nearby homes and agricultural communities. LIDAR is used to detect and map aerosols generated from pesticide spraying in orchards. We are combining this information with dispersion modeling and surface deposition samples in a geographic information system (GIS) to model potential exposures children and adults.

2. Ambient Air Monitoring with Open-Path FTIR

Our research applies Open-Path Fourier Transform Infra-Red (OP-FTIR) spectroscopy to map chemical emissions and human exposures in communities and workplaces. The ORS lab is participating in the CHC's exposure assessment group, where we are applying these techniques to measure air emissions from pesticide use . We're also investigating ways to measure particles and to find unique "fingerprints" to identify air pollution sources in urban air sheds.
