Research Interests

My major research interests are environmental, molecular epidemiology and global health. I am interested in understanding how exposure to chemicals in our environment influences maternal and child health. Specifically, I am interested in how chemical exposures in utero may alter epigenetic mechanisms that could contribute to chronic diseases later in life. I am also interested in how genetic and other individual factors such as nutritional factors may interact with chemical exposures to influences susceptibility to disease. I have a very strong background in exposure biology and developing cohorts for environmental epidemiological studies. I also have a very strong interest in international environmental health studies.
