In this quantitative laboratory, students will apply principles of the exposure sciences related to environmental and occupational health contexts. Students will learn how to design an exposure assessment study and how to analyze and model quantitative and semi-quantitative data. Students will analyze spatial and temporal dependency structure in the data and mixed exposure scenarios.
- Learning Objectives:
- Apply the principles of exposure assessment to quantify physical, chemical and biological exposures of relevance to human health.
- Perform exploratory data analysis on data obtained from exposure studies, with particular attention to data transformation and imputation methods typical to the field.
- Model exposures, including those with spatial and temporal dependency, using quantitative and semi-quantitative methods.
- Methods of Assessment:
