Expertise: Air pollution (including from wildfires) impacts on disadvantaged populations

Anjum Hajat’s current research interests look at understanding the social and environmental stressors that disproportionately impact disadvantaged populations and how these stressors impact a variety of health outcomes, a research area that may have implications for understanding the underlying causes of health disparities.

She also conducts research on the impacts of financial instability and precarious work on health outcomes. These upstream factors are critical to better understanding population health. In addition, Hajat is interested in biomarkers that are impacted by social and environmental stressors; this line of research aims to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms by which social stressors cause disease.
