Academic interests

Andy Larkin is an assistant professor senior research in the Spatial Health Lab within College of Health. His research focuses on the intersections of environment epidemiology with new technologies and big data. His past research projects include developing smartphone for air pollution informatics, developing computational models to predict biological responses to complex chemical exposures, and analyzing user interfaces from an affect heuristic perspective for optimal risk communications. Currently he is developing global land use regression (LUR) models for NO2 and PM2.5 air pollution that will be applied to the PURE cohort study; developing spatial exposure assessment methods for unconventional oil and gas development that can be applied to future epidemiological analysis; and conducting novel exposure assessment methods for green space using a smart phone application, Google street view imagery and image processing techniques.
