Since 1.January 2023, Ole Hertel has served as Vice-Dean for public sector consultancy and business collaboration at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, Aarhus University. Before that, he worked for two years as Head of Departmentfor Ecoscience, Aarhus University. Ole Hertel is recognized as an experienced researcher and teacher within the field of the environment, and especially within air pollution and its effects on health, nature and climate, where he has more than 30 years experience as a researcher and project manager.

His key research expertise is within assessment of human exposure to air pollution and assessment of atmospheric nutrient loadings on nature, applying integrated monitoring assessment (combined use of measurements and model calculations); this was the topic of his higher doctoral degree. He is working with personal exposure monitoring (PEM) and is deeply involved in testing and applying low-cost sensors and passive samplers for PEM. He is a modeler by training and have played a key role in the development of the Operational Street Pollution Model (OSPM); a model that is now applied in >25 countries around the world. He took part in the development of the Eulerian Backward Ierative (EBI) method for solving chemistry in chemistry-transport models (CTMs) used by the US-EPA as their standard method. In his PhD project he developed a Lagrangian chemistry-transport model for studying atmospheric degradation of biogenic Sulphur compounds in the atmosphere. Parts of this model were later used for developing a model for atmospheric deposition to nature (ACDEP – atmospheric chemistry and deposition model) that for 10 years was applied for mapping Nitrogen and Sulphur deposition to Danish nature.
