Dr. Jun Wu is Assistant Professor in the Program of Public Health and Department of Epidemiology, University of California, Irvine. Dr. Wu received a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Health Sciences from the UCLA School of Public Health (2004). The overarching goal of her research is to reliably characterize air pollutant exposure and examine the impact of air pollution exposure on adverse health outcomes. Dr. Wu has expertise in applying geographical information system (GIS) in tracking people’s time-activity patterns, modeling air pollution exposures, and conducting epidemiological analysis. Dr. Wu’s group has built spatial and spatiotemporal models to estimate traffic-related air pollutant exposures, applied remote sensing data in air pollution exposure assessment, developed methods to characterize major time-activity patterns of human subjects based on global positioning system (GPS) tracking data, and examined the spatial distribution of adverse health outcomes. Dr. Wu’s research has been recognized with the 2005 Young Investigator Award from the International Society of Exposure Analysis and the 2010 Walter A. Rosenblith New Investigator Award from the Health Effects Institute (HEI).
