Pol­i­cy­makers often develop new envi­ron­mental rules and reg­u­la­tions based on the rec­om­men­da­tions of researchers whose exper­tise lie in the envi­ron­mental health sciences.

Helen Suh, for example, a newly appointed asso­ciate pro­fessor of health sci­ences in the Bouvé Col­lege of Health Sci­ences, is one of the researchers at the fore­front of helping sci­en­tists and gov­ern­ment offi­cials under­stand air-​​pollution expo­sure and its impact on health.

“Many pol­lu­tants exist in the air at the same time, making it dif­fi­cult to sep­a­rate the health impacts of one pol­lu­tant from another,” said Suh, an expert in envi­ron­mental expo­sure assess­ment and epi­demi­ology. “To gather mean­ingful infor­ma­tion for pol­i­cy­makers, we need new approaches to examine the indi­vidual and joint impacts of these pol­lu­tants simultaneously.”
