Local health effects of traffic pollution subject of presentation

A UWindsor post-doctoral fellow will share his research Tuesday, March 17, in the free public lecture “Cumulative Environmental Exposures and their Challenges for Health Impact Assessment in Transportation Infrastructure Planning.”

Guest speaker Tor H. Oiamo is a research associate with the Cross-Border Institute and is serving a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) post-doctoral fellowship. Dr. Oiamo’s current research aims to integrate methods and theories in urban environmental health with transportation and land use modeling systems.

“I’ll show recent research on the effects of cumulative exposure to traffic noise and nitrogen dioxide in Windsor,” says Oiamo. “This research seminar will provide an overview of challenges surrounding cumulative exposures from a policy perspective, as well as implications for health impact assessment.”

The presentation runs from 3 to 4 p.m. in the workshop classroom on the second floor of Joyce Entrepreneurial Centre (EPICentre) at 2455 Wyandotte Street West. It is part of the Transportation Seminar Series hosted by the Cross-Border Institute and the Transportation Systems Innovation Lab of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
