Assistant Professor
Fuller Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Christina Hemphill Fuller is an assistant professor at the School of Public Health at Georgia State University in the Division of Environmental Health. Dr. Fuller works in the field of air quality exposure assessment and environmental epidemiology.

Her research interests include outdoor air pollution, the effects of air pollution on respiratory and cardiovascular health, community-engaged research, urban health and environmental justice. She was a co-investigator with the Environmental Health Core of the School of Public Health’s Center of Excellence for Health Disparities Research (CoEx). She has headed projects at Georgia State characterizing relationships between air quality, transportation and demographic factors in the Atlanta area.

Currently, she is examining the joint effects of air pollution and social factors on cardiovascular health as a JPB Environmental Health Fellow. She is an alumna of Northwestern University where she earned her bachelor’s of science degree in environmental engineering.  She received her master’s degree and ScD from the Harvard School of Public Health.
