Yinka Bode-George, MHS '17
"...my most crucial gain from this graduate experience was the opportunity to construct a public health lens framed around undoing drivers of environmental health inequities."
Junyao Gu, MS-GEE ’19
"I really love interdisciplinary research, so knowing students can benefit from both the Whiting School of Engineering and the Bloomberg School of Public Health made me so excited to attend."
Kirsten Koehler, PhD
Kirsten Koehler's goals are to improve exposure assessment methods to inform occupational and public health policy. Her research goals involve the use of direct-reading instrumentation to improve spatiotemporal exposure assessment. Direct-reading (i.e. “real-time”) monitors can rapidly assess exposures to various hazards.
Centers and Institutes in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering
The Department of Environmental Health and Engineering houses six diverse Centers.
