Interests: scientific interests focus on quantitative methods and mathematical modeling in environmental sciences, in particular modeling of influence of air pollutants on human health, as one of the key elements in the sustainable development of urban and industrial areas. His work focuses on mathematical modeling, including stochastic and exploratory methods, are the basis for creating dedicated methodologies in the area of big data and automated air monitoring systems, such as: advanced diagnostics of measurement results, model identification of interactions in environmental factors affecting diseases on a national and regional scale in the long term, system construction information dedicated to air pollution or equivalence problems of low-cost air quality monitoring sensors

Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air pollution is one of the most serious environmental risks. Air pollution has further consequences on human health, leading in particular to an increasing number of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. According to the calculations in some report, global air pollution-related healthcare costs are projected to increase from USD 21 billion. Moreover, it affects crop yields and the environment, with impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems, amongst others. This special issue is focus on stochastic modeling of air pollutants, effects of air pollutants impact on health and economy and all environmental aspects of sustainable smart city development in terms of regions.

You are encouraged to submit for this special issue regardless of the research methods. Do not hesitate to contact the editor should you have any further inquiry about the scope of this special issue.
