Sudipto Banerjee can model how pollution moves across entire continents, how trees grow in different climates, and how exposures affect human health.

To make these models and predictions, he uses Bayesian statistics, which quantifies uncertainty by combining information from observed data with prior or expert estimates.

Banerjee, professor and chair of the Department of Biostatistics at the University of California, Los Angeles Fielding School of Public Health, then uses these models to explain environmental and human health outcomes.
