Olivier Humblet received his doctorate in Epidemiology and Environmental Health from the Harvard School of Public Health in 2010. His thesis research assessed how children’s reproductive development is affected by industrial chemicals in the environment. He then focused on studying asthma in relation to air pollution and other chemical exposures. Oliver also completed postdoctoral fellowships at the Stanford School of Medicine, and for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar program at UCSF/UC Berkeley.
His current work focuses on how mobile technology and data science can be used to improve population health and prevent disease, especially for asthma and other respiratory diseases.
