Research on Health and Place
The Spatial Health Lab carries out diverse research related to health and place. We seek to apply innovative study designs, new technologies and data science approaches to understand how environmental conditions influence human health and translate this information into effective policy and prevention activities.
Our research focuses on understanding the pathways and interactions between built environment-related exposures (e.g. air pollution, green space, walkability) and a wide-range of health outcomes (e.g. birth outcomes, cardiovascular disease, mental health).
