Shelby Yamamoto is an environmental epidemiologist that explores environmental factors that impact vulnerable populations. Her research primarily focuses on two areas: air pollution and climate change. Air pollution (ambient, household) is an important environmental risk factor related to several health outcomes. She is particularly interested in a) investigating the relationship between air pollution, climate change, and chronic diseases, b) assessing the links between air pollution and climate change, and c) exploring approaches to assess these relationships.


Join Shelby for the CitiesIPCC Idea Talk: Communities & Climate Change session on Wednesday, September 23 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm where she’ll share her research project, Climate Change, Older Adults & Immigrants: Exploring Community Vulnerability & Resilience.
