Title: Research Physical Scientist

EPA Division: Human Exposure and Atmospheric Sciences Division

EPA Branch: Exposure Characterization and Apportionment Branch

Dr. Mukerjee has 20+ years experience in publishing atmospheric characterization and modeling studies related to exposure assessment. Specifically, he has conducted statistical data analyses to evaluate air quality, exposure method evaluations, land-use regression modeling, source apportionment modeling, and model applications in wind direction analyses. Air pollutants he studies include PM species, mercury, volatile organic compounds, and nitrogen dioxide. His exposure studies support epidemiologic studies of air pollutants and EPA Regional Applied Research Efforts (RARE).
