Michelle Turner

Assistant Research Professor

Her primary research interest is examining potential environmental and occupational determinants of cancer and chronic disease in epidemiological studies focussed on ambient air pollution exposures; ionizing and non-ionizing radiation (radon, uranium, extremely low frequency magnetic fields); chemical exposures; and circadian disruption to inform policy making. She is currently Vice-Chair of the COST Action CA16216 OMEGA-NET (Network on the Coordination and Harmonisation of European Occupational Cohorts).
