Program: Industrial HygieneKristina Zierold, PhDAssociate ProfessorKzierold@uab.eduResearch Interests: 

My research involves applying epidemiology and environmental and occupational health methods and concepts to community-based problems. I have worked with many diverse populations in community, clinical, and industrial settings. My education and training included quantitative and qualitative research methods, as well as exposure assessment techniques; therefore my research utilizes mixed-methods designs when applicable.

My specific interests include: children's environmental health, safety and health issues in working children and adolescents, adverse outcomes from heavy metals exposure and particulate exposure, environmental and social justice issues, air pollution modeling, and community-based research.
