Robert  Greenwald

Adjunct Assistant Professor

Adjunct or Visiting, Environmental Health

My primary research interests are measuring the ways in which air pollution influences human health. Since joining the Department of Environmental Health in 2009, much of my work has involved the development of unique sampling systems for assessing exposure to air pollution in special microenvironments such as inside vehicles while commuting. From 2005 to 2008, I was a post-doctoral fellow in Emory’s Department of Pediatrics and worked on a project investigating the influence of air pollution exposure on pediatric asthma patients. From 1999-2005, I was a PhD student at Georgia Tech and worked on two projects: development of an instrument to measure water-insoluble aerosols in real-time and computer modeling of the influence of atmospheric particulate matter on crop production. Prior to graduate school, I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Benin, West Africa (1995-1998) and studied civil engineering at Clemson University (1990-1994). I currently am an Assistant Professor at Georgia State University.
