  • Focuses on defining sources, magnitudes, and consequences of human exposure to environmental and occupational contaminants, as well as identifying and evaluating strategies to control harmful exposures.
  • Recent interests include exposure assessment and epidemiology studies investigating health impacts associated with exposure to pesticides, PCBs, tobacco smoke, and other agents, as well as approaches to evaluate, minimize, and account for exposure measurement error in epidemiology studies.
  • Related research interests are the study of exposure biomarkers, environmental factors associated with reproductive health. He's looking, for example, at how secondhand smoke and pesticides could affect pregnancy outcomes.
  • Studies occupational exposures and engineering controls within the construction industry.
