Yongsoo Choi

Post-Doctoral Fellow
Yale University

Yongsoo Choi is a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University, working under the mentorship of Dr. Michelle Bell. His primary research interest is in exploring the varying patterns of health effects caused by air pollution across different times, regions, and populations. Furthermore, he is focused on identifying the causes behind these variations. His goal is to generate valid evidence that can help reduce the overall disease burden attributable to air pollution…
