Joshua Apte
Associate Professor
Energy, Civil Infrastructure and Climate, Environmental Engineering

My research group focuses on air pollution. Our group uses field measurements, mathematical models, and analyses of large datasets to characterize and address policy-relevant air pollution challenges, especially as related to energy, infrastructure, climate change and human health. Many of our investigations are motivated by concerns of environmental justice and environmental problems in low-resource communities in the US and around the world.
