Short-Term Excess Mortality Following Tropical Cyclones in the United States
Knowledge of excess deaths after tropical cyclones is critical to understanding their impacts, directly relevant to policies on preparedness and mitigation.
Evaluation of PM2.5 Estimates During Wildfire Smoke Episodes
Investigating the health impacts of wildfire smoke requires data on people’s exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) across space and time. In recent years, it has become common to use machine...
Low-Cost Sensors to Increase Accuracy and Equity of Air Quality Information
EPA air quality monitors - the gold standard for measuring air pollutants - are sparsely positioned, meaning low-cost sensors are being increasingly utilized. But how can they be improved? We set out to investigate. Click here to read more!
Time-Lagged Relationships between Air Pollution Exposure & ADRD Hospitalization
Did you know that air pollution exposure from as many as 10 years prior to admission can increase your likelihood of hospitalization from Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia (ADRD)? Click here to read more!
Effect of Air Pollution & Ambient Temperature on CVD & Respiratory Disease in US
In this study, Drs. Yazdi, Wei, Dominici, and Shwartz examined the effect of long-term exposure to air pollution and ambient temperature on the rate of hospital admissions with cardiovascular & respiratory disease.Click here to read more.
Hyperlocal super-learned PM2.5 components across the contiguous US
Recent NSAPH work found remarkable spatiotemporal variability in the U.S. with respect to PM2.5 components, which have been associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Click here to read more.

Air pollution exposure disparities across US population and income groups
Disparities in exposure relative to safety standards set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization have been increasing over time. Click here to read the full publication.
A Self Controlled Approach to Survival Analysis
Using a self-controlled approach to survival analysis, we attempted to link long-term air pollution exposure to increased mortality while accounting for various confounders. Click here to read more!
