Dr Lia Chatzidiakou

Research Associate in the group of Professor Rod Jones at the Centre for Atmospheric Science. Lia works on the COPE project: Characterising Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Exacerbations using Environmental Exposure Modelling. The aim of this study is to provide a robust evidence base for policy makers and members of the public to take more targeted and efficient decisions on reducing environmental risk.


Lia’s research interests focus on the association between indoor air quality and well-being of the occupants. Her PhD was partially based on the large European project SINPHONIE (http://www.sinphonie.eu/) funded by the European Commission, which aimed to diminish respiratory disease in primary and nursery educational settings.
