The appointee will complement these existing areas of strength, and work across several trans-disciplinary and collaborative units in Chicago and Nigeria towards reducing environmental exposure and preventing premature mortality related to ambient and household air pollution. These include the School of Social Services Administration (SSA), Harris School of Policy, Booth School of Business, NORC, Department of Sociology and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL).
