Exploring the Potential of Low-cost Sensors in Environmental Health Applications through Kirsten Koehler’s Talk on Monday, April 1st

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

Kirsten Koehler, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health, will be giving 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, covering areas such as air pollution emissions, exposure to health effects, and monitoring approaches for air pollution exposures.

Koehler’s research primarily focuses on improving exposure assessment methods to inform occupational and public health policy. She aims to enhance spatiotemporal exposure assessment for air pollutants and climate-related exposures, with a particular focus on how air pollution affects individuals with existing diseases such as asthma or COPD. Additionally, she is interested in utilizing lower-cost sensor technologies to better understand the variability in exposures within urban areas.

The talk by Koehler is part of the EarthTalks spring 2024 series on “Urban Systems Science,” which explores the complexities of urban systems and the interactions between human and natural systems within cities and their surrounding rural environment.
