My research focuses on social determinants of environmental contaminant exposures and health risks, especially among minority populations, and designing policy solutions to address these disparities. Additional areas of research and teaching interests include using exposure biomonitoring for policy analysis, cumulative risk assessment, health impact assessment, environmental health indicator development, children's environmental health and environmental health of minority populations.
I welcome intellectually curious and motivated undergraduates, graduate students and post-docs to join my Environmental Health Systems and Policy Lab. Undergraduate students interested in a mentored independent research experience in environmental health and policy, please see this link for a Research Assistant Application. I also mentor students in the MPH and PhD in Environmental Health Sciences programs. For more information, please contact me directly.
