Scholarly Interests

My research focuses on the development of quantitative, data-driven approaches for understanding and predicting the human health effects of environmental chemicals. Specifically, my research applies computational and statistical methods to transform data into knowledge used to protect public health. I also have an interest in approaches to estimate the variability in individual susceptibility to environmental exposures, so as to better protect sensitive subpopulations.
