Adelaide Exposure Science and Health has research interests spanning occupational and environmental exposure science relating to chemical, physical and biological hazards.

We have a strong track record for applied research that investigates the impacts of occupational and environmental hazards on human health. Our research group includes expertise in industry wide studies in health care, pest control, manufacturing, emergency services and mining industries. Much of our research looks at translational health outcomes. Through this applied research, Adelaide Exposure Science and Health aims to provide empirical evidence that can be translated into policy and practice to support the protection and promotion of human health through the control and prevention of exposure to hazards.

Our diverse and applied research interests reflect the broad range of experience and skills within the group. They include: 

  • Indoor air pollution and vapour intrusion
  • Occupational and community exposure studies
  • PPE testing 
  • Skin and surface chemical exposure studies
  • Work and vision
  • Illicit drug residues in community housing
