Chad Milando, PhD, MS

Research Scientist, Environmental Health - Boston University School of Public Health


My research focuses on developing and using computational tools and analyses to investigate trends and sources of air pollution exposure, with a specific focus on vulnerable populations.

My current research at Boston University focuses on building airflow simulation and cumulative risk assessment among children with asthma, as part of the ASTHMA project.
