Tracking the Impact of Atmospheric Change on Human Health

Welcome to the digital domain of the Health-Atmosphere Nexus Group, situated within the School of Public Health at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

Our group is dedicated to researching health risks associated with atmospheric change, including air pollution, extreme weather events, and natural disasters, from local communities to the global scale. We believe that achieving a comprehensive understanding of environmental exposures requires integrating cutting-edge satellite remote sensing techniques, pioneering machine learning algorithms, well-coordinated ground monitoring systems, and advanced climate and chemical transport modeling. Our goal is to employ an interdisciplinary approach to tackling real-world environmental challenges and improving public health.

We invite you to meet our People, explore our Research, read our interdisciplinary Publications, and stay updated with our latest News.

Acknowledgment: Over the past decade, our research has received full support from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Institutes of Health. We are grateful to the University of Wisconsin, Emory University, and the University of Texas for providing us with opportunities to apply atmospheric science methods in public health research.
