New Faculty Publication – Christina Hemphill Fuller

Dr. Christina Hemphill Fuller is assistant professor in the School of Public Health‘s Division of Environmental Health. Dr. Fuller works in the field of air quality exposure assessment and environmental epidemiology. She has a co-appointment in the department of Geosciences.

Dr. Fuller recently published an article on traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.  Her study evaluates the impact of vegetative barriers on particulate matter numbers and black carbon concentrations in dwellings that are close to roadways.  From the article, “TRAP includes particulate matter (PM), oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and metals as well as particulate emissions from brake and tire wear.” and has been associated with adverse health outcomes.

Please read some of Dr. Fuller’s research below to learn more about air pollution in urban environments.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency currently has many regulations in place such as the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act to help improve the environment. Nationally, concentrations of air pollutants have dropped significantly since 1990.
