|The student will have the opportunity to work with a team of researchers in a leading laboratory in partnership with a worldwide initiative to address global health and environmental problems associated with household energy. The student will learn about laboratory evaluation of air pollutant emissions, data analysis, and publication of results. Experience with VBA or other programming language would be a plus.
|Background: Nearly 40% of the world’s population depend on solid-fuel combustion to meet household energy needs for cooking, heating, and lighting. An estimated 3-4 million people die prematurely every year due to household air pollution – more deaths than from HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria combined. EPA is a partner in a worldwide effort to address health and environment problems, coordinated by the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. The student will have the opportunity to be part of this international effort.
Opportunities for Professional Development:
|The student will work with a team of leaders in household energy research and will be part of an international initiative to address global health and environmental problems caused by air pollutant emissions from household energy sources. The student will gain experience in the laboratory evaluation of pollutant emissions, data analysis, publication of results, and professional interactions.
