Howard Kipen is generally interested in mechanism of air pollution health effects. He will soon receive a 3 year grant from USEPA to investigate the effects of climate change on indoor ozone chemistry and consequent biomarkers of health hazards. He is interested in clinical studies of how climate change affects air pollution and thus associated health effects, and in measures for ameliorating such effects. Modeling for the upcoming study will be done by Panos Georgopoulos and air pollution measurements by Qingyu Meng.
