Within Baltimore Variability in Pollution

Dr. Koehler is interested in elucidating the role of energy-related factors (i.e., transportation, power generation, and characteristics of the built environment) in the observed heterogeneity in regional air quality and personal exposure to air pollutants. Planned energy transitions in Baltimore including the decommissioning of two coal-fired power plants and anticipated changes in maritime traffic, port activities, and increase rail transport and truck transportation offer a unique opportunity to measure real-world changes in air pollutant concentrations and how they impact personal exposures to air pollutants. She is an investigator on a study through the newly established search-center.yale.edu, a collaboration between Johns Hopkins and Yale Universities.
