Acquiring the knowledge for maintaining and improving air quality is one of the critical environmental challenges of the future as it is estimated that poor air quality causes several millions of premature deaths each year. To address these issues, we study a wide range of scales ranging from exposure studies of lung cell, to observations in urban and workplace environments, to studies of effects of land use changes using numerical models.
