BS, Microbiology, University of Minnesota; MPH, Environmental Health Sciences, University of Minnesota; PhD, Environmental Health Sciences, University of Minnesota


Dr. Tran Huynh obtained her PhD in Environmental Health Sciences specializing in occupational hygiene at the University of Minnesota. Her research interests focus on exposure assessment strategies for occupational epidemiological studies as well as for risk management. She has also collaborated on the chemical exposure assessment for the GuLF STUDY funded by NIEHS. Dr. Huynh is also interested in developing theory-based health and safety interventions that target workers employed in very small businesses such as nail salons. She is a certified industrial hygienist.
