Zhendong is an exposome-nl PhD candidate specializing in the field of mapping external exposome factors at fine spatiotemporal resolution. In particular, he applies machine learning (ML) and GIS methods to investigate the complex interaction between human activities and the surrounding geographic context in urban areas. He is also interested in topics related to global health risk assessment, remote sensing for humanitarian aid, and adapting ML algorithms in spatial Big Data processing.

The environment we live in has a dominant impact on our health. It explains an estimated seventy percent of the chronic disease burden. 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
