Academic interests

Matt Bozigar is an environmental epidemiologist with a multidisciplinary background. He studies multiple adverse environmental exposures (e.g., noise, air pollution, aeroallergens, radon) and health outcomes (e.g., asthma, cancer, cardiometabolic risk factors and diseases). Matt views environmental epidemiology through a geographical lens that emphasizes “place” and how it affects the health of populations.


Host David Cooper speaks with environmental epidemiologist Dr. Matthew Bozigar about a study showing a link between exposure to loud aircraft noises and obesity.
