- Environmental exposures affect every aspect of our physical and mental health, quality of life, and life expectancy. Understanding the complex interactions between the environment and vulnerabilities, particularly in the context of disasters and other natural hazards, is an important public health focus, and will remain a vital component of the advancement and success of public health initiatives. My training includes environmental and infectious disease epidemiology and related methods, and my professional career has spanned both academia and public health practice, often integrating the two sectors. Therefore, much of my scholarly research is focused on the application of advanced epidemiologic and interdisciplinary methods to improve public health practice in environmental epidemiology, with a specific focus on climate & health and disaster epidemiology. My research seeks to measure the impacts that weather, climate, and disasters have on human health and systems from the micro (e.g., personal heat exposure measurement) to macro scales (e.g., population-level analyses, system dynamics modeling).
