Epidemiology and Environmental Health

The aim of the Epidemiology and Environmental Health group is to:

Understand and examine the factors that determine population health risk factors


We focus on population health studies with a particular emphasis on social factors. These are important contributors to environmental health risks like cancer and birth outcomes. Our work also considers occupational risks, by studying metalworking fluids, for example, and environmental exposures, like air pollution. We have also made several important methodological contributions to epidemiology.

Our current research considers the impact of polices on population health change, including EU directives to reduce air pollution, the introduction of smoking bans, political change and transition in restructuring countries and modifications of these impacts by socioeconomics.
