Meredith Franklin studied mathematics (B.Sc. McGill 2001), statistics (M.Sc. Carleton 2003) and environmental statistics (Ph.D. Harvard 2007). Before coming to the University of Toronto she was faculty at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Her research interests are at the intersection of statistics, data science, and the environment with the goal of better quantifying and understanding how the environment affects human health. She specializes in spatio-temporal methods for ground-level measurements and remote sensing data to characterize environmental factors such as air pollution, climate, and the built environment.
