SHORT BIO

Marc Serre, PhD, is an associate professor in the department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina. He has scientific expertise that includes spatiotemporal modeling and mapping of environmental contaminants, hydraulics and hydrology of water contaminants, exposure analysis and human health risk assessment, environmental and spatial epidemiology, temporal GIS, and the numerical development of advanced mapping functions. Dr. Serre has been extensively involved in many research projects at the community base level as well as several projects within international settings. He directs the UNC-BMElab research group at the University of North Carolina, which is dedicated to the numerical development of the Bayesian Maximum Entropy Method of modern Geostatistics, and its worldwide application to exposure, disease and risk mapping. As part of this effort, he has been an integral part of the development of well-known BMElib package of spatiotemporal Geostatistics used by scientists and researchers in over 30 different countries.  The applications include mapping of environmental pollutants such as lead, particulate matter, arsenic, ozone, pathogens, etc., as well as human exposure and health risk assessment, and disease mapping, both in the United States and abroad. These applications are described in a book on Temporal GIS and a book on epidemic modeling that he co-authored, as well as over 70 articles and papers and over 100 presentations at national and international conferences.
