Professional Summary

Dr. Reponen is Professor in the Department of Environmental and Public Health Sciences, College of Medicine. As an expert in indoor allergens and mold, she served as the principal investigator in several major laboratory and field experiments on airborne allergens, bacteria, and fungi and has directed exposure assessment teams in population-based studies, including the Cincinnati Childhood Allergy and Air Pollution Study (CCAAPS), Marietta study and e-waste study. Dr. Reponen is the Director of the NIOSH-funded University of Cincinnati Education and Research Center (ERC), which includes graduate programs related to occupational health from three colleges: Medicine, Nursing, and Applied Science and Engineering. Dr. Reponen teaches two required courses on exposure assessment to graduate students in the Industrial Hygiene program (since 1998) and is a concentration director of the Environmental Public Health Concentration of the MPH program. She has mentored over 65 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. She has also served on Ph.D. committees and as an external reviewer of Ph.D. theses of several international students (from Finland, Australia, France, and Lithuania).
 
Dr. Reponen is an Editor for the Aerosol Science and Technology journal and a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Indoor Air journal and the Science of the Total Environment journal. She is active in the American Association of Aerosol Research (AAAR) and the International Society of Indoor Air Quality (ISIAQ). In the AAAR, she has served in the Board of Directors, the Chair of Indoor Aerosols working group, and the Chair of the Awards Committee. In the ISIAQ, she has served as the Treasurer of the Board of Directors. She is the Chair of the NIOSH Board of Scientific Counselors and a member of the ISIAQ Academy of Fellows and the Fellows of Graduate School of the University of Cincinnati.  She is also a recipient of Finland Distinguished Professor (FiDiPro) award. 

Education

MS: University of Kuopio Kuopio, Finland, 1985 (Environmental Hygiene)

Licentiate of Philosophy : University of Kuopio Kuopio, Finland, 1989 (Environmental Sciences)

PhD: University of Kuopio Kuopio, Finland, 1994 (Environmental Sciences)

Research and Practice Interests

Bioaerosols, Mold, Bacteria, Pollen, Allergens, Exposure assessment, Indoor air quality
Dr. Reponen’s research is focused on the exposure assessment of bioaerosols in indoor and industrial environments, including physical and microbiological characterization of airborne actinomycete and fungal spores, the dispersion of bioaerosols under natural and laboratory conditions, and the control of airborne microorganisms by filtration. In her field studies, she is collaborating with epidemiologists in investigating the health effects of particle and bioaerosol exposures.
