Professor Winer's research program focuses primarily on experimental and modeling studies concerned with air pollutant exposure assessment, with an emphasis on children's exposure to toxic air contaminants, including diesel exhaust. Recent and current field studies involve measurements in several microenvironments important for children's exposure, including residential homes, portable classrooms and diesel school buses. The overarching goal of all these field-based research projects is to more accurately characterize air pollutant exposure in critical microenvironments, rather than relying on data from and handful of fixed-site outdoor air monitors.
