Dr. Miranda Loh is an Assistant Professor in the Community, Environment and Policy Division at The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. She received her master's and doctoral degrees in Environmental Health Sciences from the Harvard School of Public Health. She is an active member of the International Society of Exposure Science.
Dr. Loh's research includes personal exposures to air pollutants such as volatile organic compounds and particulate matter, and the contribution of different routes (such as inhalation, ingestion, dermal) to a person's intake of pollutants. Her research interests include the influence of the urban environment on exposures, particularly indoors, where people spend the majority of their time. Her research explores the impact of personal behaviors such as time-activity patterns and microenvironment factors such as building ventilation on exposure and the differences in such exposure factors between population groups. Dr. Loh's current projects include an examination of arsenic in well water and its relationship with human biomarkers, research on multi-media indoor and outdoor exposures to metals in communities near contaminated sites, and mining impacts on health. She is especially committed to interdisciplinary research.
