As an Associate Professor in the Environmental Health and Engineering department at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Dr. Koehler’s goals are to improve exposure assessment methods to inform occupational and public health policy. Her research focuses on improving spatiotemporal exposure assessment for air pollutants and climate related exposures. Much of her research focuses on the ways air pollution impacts those with existing disease, like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. She is interested in how ambient and indoor environments can contribute to the symptoms of these individuals and health disparities, and how lower-cost sensor technologies can be used to improve our understanding of the variability in exposures within cities.
