He is involved in the activities of the US Transportation Research Board’s Committee on Transportation and Air Quality (ADC20).

His research bridges the gap between engineering, social science and public health. His research covers the monitoring, modelling and management aspects of air quality. His research focusses on air quality and health with special emphasis on personal exposure of population to air pollution. He is interested in environmental justice with a focus on understanding the links between land use, transportation, air quality, social deprivation and health. His recent work focuses on climate change (adaptation and mitigation) with particular emphasis on net-zero policies, strategies and practices.

He has worked extensively in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America through academic collaborations and funded research projects.
