Dr. Hind Sbihi’s research focuses on the human health effects of the built environment (air pollution, natural spaces, microbiome) with a growing interest in identifying intervention strategies to reduce exposures and improve health. Transforming plausible mechanistic insights into effective applications for the prevention of pediatric allergic diseases such as asthma is currently the focus of her postdoctoral training.
Sbihi received the BC Children’s Research Institute Mining for Miracles postdoctoral fellowship. Throughout her PhD, her research was supported by the CIHR Banting and Best doctoral award, the four year UBC doctoral fellowship and the Killam Pre-doctoral fellowship. In 2011, she received the David Bates Scholarship, a British Columbia air quality fund, which recognizes graduate students in the field of environmental and air quality sciences.
