Jonathan Thornburg, Ph.D.

Dr. Thornburg has a Ph.D. in Aerosol Physics and Engineering from the University of North Carolina with over 19 years of experience in aerosol exposure studies and indoor air quality. His expertise is in understanding the sources, transport mechanisms, and environmental factors that determine the concentration and temporal variability of a person’s exposure to particulate matter, trace organics, and inorganic gases. He currently leads the aerosol exposure and technology research program at RTI International. His current research interest is developing integrated exposure measurement techniques by combining novel exposure measurement metrics with exposure models and machine learning to better correlate exposures and adverse health outcomes.
