Prof. Hatzopoulou joined the Department’s transportation research section this fall.
Hatzopoulou investigates how emissions are generated by on-road vehicles, how they disperse in urban environments and who is exposed. She tries to understand how traffic patterns, road design and the characteristics of built environments can be modified to improve air quality in urban areas.
“U of T is a vibrant, diverse and inspiring place to do research,” said Prof. Hatzopoulou. “I can collaborate with a wide range of researchers in transportation, environment and health. The City of Toronto is an ideal test bed for my research and provides a great environment for knowledge transfer and developing tools to help vulnerable individuals reduce their exposure to urban emissions.”
