Prof. Yeganeh Hayeri on “The Role of Transportation in Improving America’s Health”
From Edmund Fogarty II
Presented on Wednesday, August 12 for the "SSE Dean’s Virtual Seminar Series: The Future of Systems" featuring Prof. Yeganeh Hayeri on “The Role of Transportation in Improving America’s Health.”
In this talk, Prof. Hayeri discusses recent research in the transportation sector that shows strong evidence that particulate matters play a role in viral transmission. She reports on vehicle combustion results in smog-forming emissions that could possibly contribute to top causes of death, including heart diseases, strokes, lower respiratory diseases, cancers, and viral infections.
Dr. Hayeri is an assistant professor in the School of Systems and Enterprises at Stevens. She completed a dual Ph.D. in civil and environmental engineering - engineering and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University. She did postdoctoral research at University of Pennsylvania in the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Laboratory.
The "SSE Dean’s Virtual Seminar Series: The Future of Systems" is presented by Dean Yehia Massoud and offers weekly lectures each Wednesday at noon for Stevens undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, administration and guests. At each session, SSE faculty will present a 20-minute lecture, followed by a five-to-ten minute Q&A session.
The series has been created to keep students informed on the advances of faculty research, and the mission of the School of Systems and Enterprises as a leader in systems science and engineering. Each lecture will be recorded and made available on Kaltura for those who are unable to attend the live Zoom sessions.
