Research Assistant Professor

Faculty, Environmental Health

My research focuses on employing massive datasets, including satellite-retrieved high resolution exposures and health data of all Medicare beneficiaries, to investigate how climate change and air pollution influence mortality and chornic health conditions (e.g., neurological disorders and cardiovascular diseases), and better frame environmental policy. More specifically, my research is focused on five main topics: (1) application of remote sensing in environmental exposure modeling (e.g., predicting high-resolution particulate matter, PM2.5 components, ozone, NO2, and temperature); (2) estimating the health consequences of exposure to air pollutants and climate change, and environmental health disparities; (3) estimating the link between climate change and air quality, and the mediated health impacts; (4) estimating the joint and independent health effects of air pollutant mixtures; (5) statistical modeling, e.g., causal modeling and big data approach.
