Emily Johnson's picture

PhD Student at Yale School of Public Health

BS (Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry) – Yale University, USA - 2021

MPH (Environmental Health Sciences) – Yale University, USA- 2022

- Emily is interested in the intersection between green chemistry and public health. After completing her BS, she moved into the world of public health, where she studies personal exposures to air pollutants. Working under Dr. Krystal Pollitt, she focuses on capturing airborne PFAS exposures using the Fresh Air passive air samplers. While completing her MPH, she learned about the fundamentals of green chemistry, and she intends to merge her environmental health science background into design-phase research and the fields of green chemistry and engineering. During her PhD, she hopes to continue this work in the studies of microplastics as well as the interface between disease and chemical contaminants.  

- Outside of the lab, Emily loves to read, drink too much coffee, listen to music, and hang out with her dog, Darcie.
