Yongsoo Choi is a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University. His primary research interest is in exploring the varying patterns of health effects caused by environmental risk factors such as air pollution and temperature across different times, regions, and populations. Furthermore, he is focused on identifying the causes behind these variations and predicting the future burden of diseases associated with these risk factors. His goal is to generate valid evidence that can help reduce the overall disease burden attributable to environmental risk factors and alleviate the environmental injustice they cause at both global and regional levels.
