Dr. Klepeis has bachelor and master’s level training in Physical and Theoretical Chemistry with a doctorate in Environmental Health Sciences, and post-doctorate experience and training in Environmental Engineering, Statistics, and Behavioral Health. As part of his research, he has developed scientific software for data analysis, human exposure and indoor air models, and behavior modeling and simulation. He is an expert in real-time monitoring techniques and mathematical modeling, and he has published 47 articles and chapters, including landmark secondhand smoke studies of residential, outdoor, in-vehicle, casino, and multi-unit housing settings. Since 2007, Dr. Klepeis has served as principal investigator and co-investigator on novel research that brings elements of engineering and computer modeling to real-time behavioral health interventions. Dr. Klepeis is well-positioned to synthesize the environmental science and behavioral health fields and, thereby, discover effective and innovative ways to eliminate exposures and health risks through behavior change. Dr. Klepeis aims to leverage his training in physical science, computational science, and environmental engineering science to elucidate principles of behavior science and apply cutting-edge sensing technology for the advancement of human health and well-being. A main focus of Dr. Klepeis’ current research is developing and scientifically evaluating simulation models of human behavior & environmental properties for use with just-in-time adaptive interventions (JITAIs) in smart-building settings.
