Lisa M. Thompson is an Associate Professor at Emory University, with appointments in the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and Rollins School of Public Health. Dr. Thompson received her MS and PhD degrees in Environmental Health Studies from the University of California, Berkeley. Her research on environmental health focuses on reducing household air pollutants that contribute to adverse maternal-child outcomes. For two decades, she has focused on household air pollution from solid fuel cookstoves in low-resource countries. She is a co-Investigator on the Household Air Pollution Intervention Network (HAPIN) trial, the largest multi- country randomized controlled trial on household air pollution globally. She will talk about her NIEHS-funded study, ECOLECTIVOS, which is a cluster randomized village-level intervention trial using implementation research to reduce plastic burning in household fires in rural Guatemala where the HAPIN trial was conducted.
