Joshua Apte is an Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. Apte’s research focus is air quality engineering and various techniques for air pollution exposure assessment. His research group uses field measurements, mathematical models, and analyses of large datasets to address policy-relevant air pollution challenges related to energy, infrastructure, climate change, and human health. Much of his research is motivated by a desire to identify technologies, policies, and strategies for improving the environmental sustainability of cities and the built environment and to reduce inequities in exposure to environmental contaminants in low-resource communities in the US and around the world.
