My research focuses on 1) cardio-metabolic impacts of exposures from environment (such as toxic metals and air pollution) and work (such as job-related stress seen in commercial vehicle drivers); 2) Safety and medical managements of radiation exposure; and 3) Metal metabolism and gene-metal interactions.
