Marika Egyed leads the Air Sectors Health Assessment Section in Health Canada’s air quality program. She has 30 years of experience conducting human health risk assessments for air pollutants. Her team evaluates the health risks associated with air pollutant mixtures from multiple sources of air pollution, including diesel exhaust and traffic-related air pollution. Her team’s work includes assessment of the health burden of air pollution as well as of individual sources of air pollution, and the health benefits associated with emission reductions of mitigation strategies. Marika was the co-lead author of the chapter addressing air quality in the national climate change assessment report “Health of Canadians in a Changing Climate”.
