Founder

Gabriel Okello is an Exposure Scientist with specific interests in the health effects of air pollution on people and the environment. Gabriel is utilizing evidence of air pollution in communities to spark action at policy and strategic level and promote inclusive evidence-based policies and interventions to reduce air pollution and create more liveable urban spaces that support improved public health and wellbeing in rapidly urbanizing Africancities. Gabriel is currently applying multidisciplinary participatory approaches to co-design strategies and assess pathways through which policy, community and commercial actions can be leveraged to tackle air pollution, climate change, and explore co-benefits such as potential creation of green jobs in Africa.
