Kees de Hoogh, PD, PhD


Kees is an environmental exposure scientist and assistant professor working at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute in Basel, Switzerland. He specialises in spatial modelling and exposure assessment for studies on environment and health. His recent focus involves cutting edge fine resolution spatio-temporal modelling to derive refined exposures using satellite and ancillary data. He has been involved in a number of large projects (BioSHARE, ESCAPE, ELAPSE) where he co-led the air pollution exposure assessment, and currently is a co-PI of the EXPANSE and PI of MOBI-AIR studies. In Switzerland he has collaborations with the Luftibus and BILD cohorts.
