The laboratory of Prof. Georgopoulos (ccl.rutgers.edu) studies Environmental and Public Health issues, focusing on two complementary research areas:
- Multiscale computational modeling of interacting environmental and biological systems.
- Enviroinformatics, bioinformatics, and socioinformatics applications, using predictive data analytics to understand human exposures to pollutants and associated health outcomes.
Various research efforts in both the above areas involve the modeling and analysis of climate change effects on environmental quality and public health. Examples include the impact of climate change on anthropogenic and biogenic atmospheric; on the spatial and temporal patterns of co-occurring photochemical pollutants (ozone, nitrogen oxides, secondary particulate matter) and biological aeroallergens (pollens and spores); and on human exposures to ambient and indoor air pollutants under alternative scenarios of growth and resource utilization.
