Suh profiled in new position at Bouvé College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University
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.”
