Brandt kicks off CPPA Colloquium Series with talk about traffic-related pollution
Associate professor Sylvia Brandt of Resource Economics and Public Policy, will discuss her recent work in a talk titled “The Costs of Traffic-Related Pollution in Los Angeles: Implications for Smart Growth” on Monday, Feb. 4 at noon in 620 Thompson Hall.
The research upon which Brandt’s talk is based was published last January in the European Respiratory Journal and has been named one of the top research papers of 2012 by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The study examined the full economic impact of childhood asthma caused by air pollution in two California cities.
Brandt’s lecture is the first in the Center for Public Policy and Administration’s spring Faculty Colloquium series, which consists of informal talks, often about works-in-progress, with presenters providing a significant amount of time for audience discussion and feedback. They are open to the public and brown bag lunches are welcome.
