Research and Professional Interests

Air pollution poses a significant threat to human health on a global scale. I am interested in understanding the environmental processes and chemical mechanisms related to air pollution, which has increased significantly in recent years as a result of climate change. My research examines the nexus between trees and air pollution, as well as human exposure while quantifying trees’ effect on urban air quality. 

Why Geography, Geomatics and Environment at UTM? 

To begin, I am intrigued by Dr. Matthew Adams’ work on air pollution and environmental GIS, which incorporates both computational and chemical analyses. Meanwhile, the Department fosters an inspiring, cohesive, and supportive learning environment that allows me to apply my academic skills into practice and conduct cutting-edge research.
