Jeroen De Bont
I am a postdoctoral researcher in environmental epidemiology. I have a special interest evaluating the effect of the urban environment, especially ambient air pollution, on multiple health outcomes.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at Karolinska Institutet. I am an environmental scientist and public health specialist by training, and did my PhD in environmental epidemiology at ISGlobal and IDIAP Jordi Gol in Spain. During my PhD I focused on the effects of the urban environment, especially ambient air pollution, on the development of childhood obesity. Nowadays, my main research of interest is evaluating the effect of multiple urban exposures on multiple health outcomes in children and adults across Sweden, Europe and India. I have a special interest in issues related to the environment, public health, urban environment and cardio-metabolic outcomes, especially in lower-middle-income countries and across the different socioeconomic layers. I am currently working in multiple national and international projects including CHAIR-India, EXPANSE, MiljöSCAPIS, and CHAMNA.
