Research Interests & Projects
My methods work primarily focuses on multi-pollutant modeling, non-linear interaction selection in the presence of many environmental contaminants, and statistical inference when exposure data are subject to multiple detection limits. I have a number of applied collaborations in environmental statistics ranging from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, racial disparities in telomere length, and gestational duration in pregnant women.
