Science-based Public Policy
Our work focuses on generating and disseminating the knowledge needed for better public decisionmaking. This entails use-inspired scientific research as well as direct involvement in designing, implementing, and evaluating effective policies.
The best way to reduce health risks from environmental exposures is to reduce emissions at the source. However, risk communication and personal interventions can supplement these efforts, using quantitative approaches that reflect the best available scientific evidence and rigorously evaluating them.
Our work improves exposure assessment data for scientific research and building capacity for a wide range of stakeholders to employ state-of-the-art exposure assessment tools in management and policymaking.
Climate Change and Wildland Fires
Our work incorporates the health impacts of climate change into greenhouse gas mitigation and climate adaptation policymaking. In addition, we focus on scientific, policy, and management strategies to address the increasing adverse impacts of wildland fires.
