Miranda Loh, PhD

Dr. Loh is Assistant Professor in the Community, Environment and Policy Division at The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. 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. She is also interested in the effect of climate change and climate-related policies on health and welfare. Dr. Loh’s current projects include an examination of arsenic in well water and the relationship with human biomarkers, research on multi-media indoor and outdoor exposures to metals in communities near contaminated sites. She is especially committed to interdisciplinary research.
