Dr Susanne Steinle

Research Scientist

Susanne is a Research Scientist. She is currently involved in a variety of projects regarding air pollution and environmental and occupational exposures. Recently Susanne has worked with volunteers at the exposome in family homes (HEALS) and assessing the feasibility of personal air quality sensors and apps (CitieSense). This work also included aspects of participatory science, self-administered data collection and the feeding back of results. Further studies Susanne is involved in include efficiency testing of respiratory protective equipment (diesel emissions (APIC-ESTEE) and volcanic ash (HIVE)) in a laboratory environment. These projects include the testing of the actual material as well as a volunteer study. Susanne is also involved in occupational exposure work having visited paint companies and boat yards for exposure measurements (chemicals and nanomaterials) and has accomplished the BOHS course W501 Measurements of Hazardous Substances.
