Dr. Jacob Kremer is an environmental health scientist with focus in exposure assessment, risk assessment, industrial hygiene, and occupational health. His research has focused on human exposures and health effects associated with indoor and household air pollution.
Dr. Kremer has extensive experience with understanding exposure to fine particulate matter, black carbon, and carbon monoxide in the indoor air setting. As a doctoral student, he worked on the largest household air pollution intervention trial to date in Guatemala, India, Peru, and Rwanda. His work evaluated the effectiveness of a liquefied petroleum gas stove intervention at reducing emissions from woodsmoke in indoor air. He used novel exposure assessment methods including modeling exposures to carbon monoxide and characterizing sub-daily exposures to household air pollution. Using these methods, Dr. Kremer helped develop exposure response relationships for adverse human health end points including low birth weight and high blood pressure. As part of this project, Dr. Kremer gained field experience in rural Guatemala coordinating field visits, developing protocols for equipment setup and takedown, and leading analyses on collected samples.
Additionally, Dr. Kremer has experience characterizing firefighter exposures to wildfire smoke, specifically developing protocols for calculating black carbon concentrations.
