The relation between risk of CVD and chronic exposure to air pollution
I am currently investigating health consequences of chronic exposure to air pollution, particularly focusing on the excess risk of stroke and cardiac events in a population exposed to low air pollution levels. My epidemiological work includes longitudinal data from several cohorts, the use of quality registers and state of the art exposure assessment. I have also had the opportunity to work with risk assessment by modeling air pollution exposure for Stockholm County using the Land Use Regression technique as part of a European science collaboration called ESCAPE.
