Pappin

I conduct interdisciplinary research to provide scientific tools to support air quality decision-making. My research bridges between the two fields of air quality modeling and health sciences, where I use air quality models to trace air pollution health impacts to individual sources of emissions (e.g., across different sectors, locations or times).
