Kees is an environmental exposure scientist at Utrecht University and assistant professor working at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute in Basel, Switzerland. He specialises in spatial modelling and exposure assessment for studies on environment and health. His recent focus involves cutting edge fine resolution spatio-temporal modelling to derive refined exposures using satellite and ancillary data.
He has been involved in a number of large projects (BioSHARE, ESCAPE, ELAPSE) where he co-led the air pollution exposure assessment, and currently is a co-PI of the EXPANSE and PI of MOBI-AIR studies.

Where we live, what we eat, how much we exercise, the air we breathe and whom we associate with; all of these environmental factors play a role. The combination of these factors over the life course is called the exposome. There is general (scientific) consensus that understanding more about the exposome will help explain the current burden of disease and that it provides entry points for prevention and ...Read More
