Allan C Just, PhD
Dr. Allan Just is an environmental epidemiologist and Associate Professor of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. His areas of research include children's environmental health, remote sensing and air pollution modeling with satellite data, climate and health epidemiology, and epigenomics. His research investigates how better estimates of the quality of the air we breathe and the temperature in our neighborhoods reveal previously underestimated exposure disparities and health impacts. He uses NASA satellite products and spatiotemporal machine learning to reconstruct environmental exposures to fine particulate matter (PM2.5), air temperature, and humidity in epidemiologic health studies with cohorts and large registries across the US and Mexico. In 2021, he was awarded an NIEHS Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) R01 for his five year project entitled “Extreme temperature, humidity, air pollution and spontaneous preterm birth”.
After obtaining his ScB in Environmental Science at Brown, Dr. Just received his PhD in Environmental Health Science from Columbia University, and completed postdoctoral training in environmental epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health before joining the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2015.
