My research involves the development of epidemiologic methods and their direct application to environmental and genetic epidemiology. Examples include the association between outdoor and indoor air pollution with human health, methods and applications for the detection of gene-environment (GxE) interactions, and current challenges in the analysis of DNA methylation data.

My mission is to improve the understanding of environmental risk factors particularly in susceptible populations that are often already at a higher risk for disease
