TOR H. OIAMO, PHD
Dr. Oiamo is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Ryerson University. Building on doctoral research at Western University and postdoctoral research at the University of Windsor’s Cross-Border Institute, his current research in environmental health geography focuses on exposure assessment through the development of environmental models of noise and air quality, novel population exposure metrics, and simulation systems to assess health impacts of urban change. These efforts complement research activities that aim to further our understanding of environmental determinants of health as well as health and disease risks in vulnerable urban populations. Through collaboration with institutions such as Health Canada and Toronto Public Health, these research activities are oriented towards relevant environmental decision-making and policy arenas. Dr. Oiamo also teaches on topics related to environmental decision-making, sustainable development, demography and environmental health.
