We are delighted to announce that Dr Gary Fuller is now confirmed as the fifth speaker at our National  Air Quality Conference which will be held at Lords in London on 8th November.

Along with Professor Sir Stephen Holgate and Dr Suzanne Bartington, Gary is one of the country’s three UKRI Clean Air Champions.

The Champions bring together outstanding researchers across atmospheric, medical and social science to develop practical solutions for air quality issues, and then ensure that these interdisciplinary communities are connected to the public and wider policy and business environment to maximise the impact of their research.

Gary’s day job is Senior Lecturer in Air Quality Measurement at Imperial College London’s Faculty of MedicineSchool of Public Health. 

His research interests focus on urban air pollution, how this is changing and how it affects our health.

He led the development of the London Air Quality Network to become the largest urban network in Europe and is a member of Defra’s Air Quality Expert Group.

Gary was also a co-author of Every Breath You Take, the Royal College of Physician’s report on the life-long impacts air pollution.

He describes himself as passionate about communicating air pollution science to policymakers and the public. This has included evidence to the Parliamentary Environmental Audit Committee and the Greater London Assembly.

Gary is a regular contributor to the Guardian, for whom he writes the Pollution Watch column and he also declares a keen interest in air pollution history and how the lessons from the past can help future air pollution management. These themes are explored in his book ‘The Invisible Killer – the rising global threat of air pollution and how we can fight back.’
