Janice Susaya Garcia, Ph.D.

Associate Professor 1

Dr. Janice Garcia specializes in air quality study and her research interest is in the impacts of atmospheric pollutants emitted from various sources to human health and the environment, and method development studies. She also delivers lectures about how environmental and human health risks are managed during engineering design stages of a facility. She coordinates and co-teaches Ecosystem Structure and Dynamics, Environmental Impact Assessment, Contemporary Issues in Environment and Development, and Environmental Research Methods.
