Environmental Exposures Group

The Environmental Exposures Group (EEG) leads state-of-the-art exposure modelling and assessments, which underlie the epidemiological studies and risk assessment for the Small Area Health Statistics Unit (SAHSU) and projects funded by UK and EU research councils within the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health.

The Environmental Exposures Group conducts exposure assessment for a wide range of environmental contaminants and media including air pollution, bio-aerosols, electromagnetic fields associated with mobile telephones and power lines, waste processing, and noise pollution, over different spatial and temporal scales.

The Environmental Exposures Group also undertakes methodological research based around geographical information systems (GIS) to develop state-of-the-art techniques for modelling the interactions between environment, population and health. This work is often supported by bespoke environmental monitoring to calibrate and evaluate models.
