The Queensland Alliance for Environmental Health Sciences (QAEHS) is a research centre, jointly funded by The University of Queensland and Queensland Health. QAEHS aims to improve human health through environmental health science by addressing local, national, and global environmental health science challenges and achieve first class outcomes in research, training, and partnership engagement while meeting the needs of Queensland and the wider community.

Wastewater says a lot about who we are. It contains a variety of anthropogenic chemicals such as pharmaceuticals, drugs, and metabolites which reflect our diets. Join Dr Phil Choi to learn how the researchers at QAEHS are able to measure these chemicals in wastewater to understand and even predict the socioeconomic makeup of our communities.

This webinar will be delivered live to enable participants an opportunity to interact and ask questions on the subject, but will also be recorded and made available on-demand after the event. People who register via the button above will be sent the link to the webinar on the day of the event.

About Dr Phil Choi: Dr Choi is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow who is interested in finding relationships between real-life phenomena and wastewater-based epidemiology studies, human biomonitoring studies. He is particularly interested in learning how socioeconomic and sociodemographic factors are linked to the consumption of different drugs, foods and pollutants, and uses targeted and non-targeted mass spectrometry to tackle these questions.
