Kipruto Kirwa

Dr. Kirwa applies techniques from environmental health, epidemiology, infections disease control, and statistical modeling to better understand how environmental factors affect human health, and how those effects can be mitigated. His research seeks to improve the quantification of air pollutant exposures, identify population groups most at-risk for pollutant-induced harms, and examine the interplay between pollutants and emerging health threats, with a focus on the impact of air pollutants on infectious and non-infectious cardiorespiratory and birth outcomes in children and adults in the US and in international contexts.
