Research focus

My research leverages large-scale datasets, including high-resolution air pollution and climate data, contextual factors such as community socioeconomic status, and longitudinal health records, to generate robust evidence of how environmental exposures impact population health and modify vulnearbilities.

In particular, combining epidemiology, causal modeling, machine learning, and statistics, my research lies in the following three areas: 1) assessing causal effects of environmental exposures on mortality and comorbidities including cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, neurological disorders, and cancer; 2) identifying contextual characteristics that differentiate population vulnerabilities to the effects of environmental exposures; and 3) evaluating the bias in health effect estimate caused by exposure measurement error.
