I am an environmental epidemiologist with a strong interest in policy-oriented, equity-informed research. I feel strongly that climate change is one of the most pressing public health problems of our time and I am committed to research that advances holistic and equitable solutions to protect the public from this growing threat. My research program seeks to understand how environmental pollution and extreme weather, alone and in combination with neighborhood (built and natural environment) and economic factors, influence population health. My work emphasizes environmental justice and aims to reduce population-wide environmental health disparities by producing results to inform equitable policies.
