My group's research focuses on understanding what factors influence people's exposure to environmental pollutants, their impact on health, and interventions to address them. We design studies that involve measurement of pollution exposures and provide unique data sets to address grand challenges in global environmental health. These projects involve interdisciplinary collaborations to answer questions like:
- What is the impact of improved energy technology and housing and transportation policies on health?
- Are certain pollutants from different sources (e.g., wood combustion, traffic, industry) more harmful to health?
- How does exposure to environmental pollutants during a person's lifetime impact disease development later in life?
