Xin Yu: Susceptibility to Autism Risks Associated with Early Life Ambient Air Pollution Exposures: Identifying Vulnerable Populations

Many studies have found associations between early life air pollution exposure and subsequent onset of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, characteristics that affect susceptibility remain unclear. Understanding patterns of susceptibility can help identify sensitive subpopulations that may benefit most from air pollution emission controls. In these studies, the interactive effects between early-life air pollution and coexisting factors such as maternal immune activation and neighborhood contextual SES on autism risk will be examined to identify vulnerable populations.

Spatial Sciences Institute Conference Room (AHF B57J) and by Zoom

Let’s nerd out on maps together! We’ll make a map and chit chat about what’s happening and in general revel in the glory that is rambunctious geographic thinking.

John Nelson is a map maker, software experience designer and writer at Esri creating fringe geographic data, curious web experiences, moderately-educational blogs and marginally-instructional videos. He works in a small woodshed in Michigan and relishes the opportunity to chat with other map folks.
