Ulrike Gehring is an Associate Professor at the Environmental Epidemiology Division of the Institute of Risk Assessment Sciences at Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
She obtained a Master of Science in Statistics from the University of Dortmund, Germany in 1998 and a PhD in Environmental Epidemiology from the Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich, Germany in 2004.
Her research focuses on the long-term effects of ambient air pollution and the determinants of asthma and allergies in children. Prospective birth cohort studies, in particular the Dutch PIAMA study, but also other birth cohort studies, through collaboration, play an important role in her research and allow her to investigate exposure-health relationships through different stages of life.
Her research is multidisciplinary combining statistics with epidemiology, medical science and exposure science.
