Environmental Epidemiology Research

Understanding the role of the environment in human health is critical to improve health and quality of life in human populations, especially among vulnerable and marginalized groups.

Using an epidemiologic approach, we conduct population-based research that incorporates state-of-the-art exposure and outcome assessment to evaluate the role of the environment in disease, disability, and other health outcomes and to develop strategies for disease prevention and control. We engage with diverse populations nationally and internationally, employ classic and cutting-edge epidemiologic methods, and investigate a broad range of environmental exposures including the natural and built-environment.
