My research aims to understand population exposure to environmental hazards. Often times there are both social and built environmental determinants that condition how individuals within a population are exposed to these hazards. I develop sensor systems to collect objective data on how different people within populations are exposed throughout their daily lives.
By using community-engaged research practices and working with community partners, we try and understand the context behind these population exposures and explore strategies to reduce them and their health impacts.
I have different research studies, some of which focus on the exposures experienced by African American, Hispanic, Chinese, and/or Native populations.
