The UGH Lab

The Utah Geo-Health Lab was established in 2014. Research of the lab focuses on using GIS and spatial methods to investigate public health and environmental health problems. Current projects of the lab include smartphone-based mobility study (funded by the National Institute of Health), GIS-assisted air pollution exposure modeling (funded by the Natural Science Foundation of China), health consequences of agricultural pesticides exposure, health disparities, and access to healthcare. Details of these projects could be found on the Projects page.
