With the aim of influencing future environmental policies for reducing human exposure to air pollution, Nyhan’s research focuses on modeling and predicting interactions between human populations, urban systems and the environment. Nyhan examines data gathered from various human-driven activities, and applies models to describe the underlying principles governing these separate systems and their interactions. By leveraging digital information such as data from cellular networks, GPS navigation systems and distributed networks of sensors, Nyhan develops new approaches to study the interplay between human behaviour, the environment and health. In her presentation, Nyhan will discuss a number of studies, including a recently published paper demonstrating the use of mobile device data to track the movements of millions of people in New York City, for quantifying population exposure to fine particulate matter. This work has been featured in the Guardian, MIT News and numerous other online media publications.
