About Me

I'm a former postdoctoral fellow under professor Elsie Sunderland with one foot in the Harvard School of Public Health and another in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. As a former member of the Biogeochemistry of Global Contaminants group at Harvard (, my focus has been on building statistical and mechanistic models to better understand the fate, transport, and bioaccumulation of contaminants in the environment with the ultimate goal of mitigating human exposures.

I currently work for the Eastern Research Group (ERG) as an Environmental Epidemiologist.  (
