Jeremy Hess, of the University of Washington, is an associate professor in Emergency Medicine, Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, and Global Health. He is interested in developing a comprehensive description of associations between climate, weather, and pollen phenology.
The goals of his HAQAST project are to advance understanding of the climatic and weather factors that affect the spatial and temporal characteristics of aeroallergens; to forecast pollen conditions a season in advance; to project pollen conditions 10-40 years in the future; and to generate applications from this research to facilitate public health activities related to aeroallergens and climate change adaptation.
In addition, he contributes to the following Tiger Teams:
- Using Satellite Remote Sensing to Derive Global Climate and Air Pollution Indicators, led by Susan Anenberg.
- Supporting the Use of Satellite Data in State Implementation Plans (SIPS), led by Arlene Fiore.
- High Resolution Paticulate Matter Data for Improved Satellite-Based Assessments of Community Health, led by Patrick Kinney.
