Dr. Zang works on climate change and population health. Specifically, she is collaborating with YCCCH colleagues to better understand the impact of extreme temperature and air pollution on children's academic performance and health, using administrative data for all public schools in North Carolina. She and collaborators are also evaluating the effect of long-term ozone exposure on cognitive impairment among Chinese older adults. In the future, she is also interested in examining the impact of climate change on fertility, mortality, and migration patterns in the US and China.
