Faculty, Environmental Health

Dr. Salamova is an Assistant Professor in the Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health in the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. Prior to joining Emory, Dr. Salamova was an Associate Scientist in the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University Bloomington. Dr. Salamova uses analytical chemistry and novel exposure assessment tools to investigate environmental exposures to harmful chemical contaminants and their effects on human health.  She specifically focuses on exposures to a large group of organic contaminants, semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), in vulnerable populations, such as children, older adults, indigenous and rural communities.  Dr. Salamova’s research interests focus on determining exposure sources of well-known and emerging SVOCs and on developing effective interventions to prevent or reduce these exposures.  Her research is funded by the United States National Institutes of Health, Environmental Protection Agency, and Department of Agriculture. Dr. Salamova has published over 50 peer-reviewed publications and presented her research at numerous national and international professional conferences. She received the Joan Daisey Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the International Society of Exposure Science in 2021.
