Research Description

I am interested in methods in occupational epidemiology. My expertise bridges three fields — occupational and environmental health, biostatistics and epidemiology. Trained in biostatistics and motivated by questions about the occupational causes of disease, I am interested in methods for addressing analytical limitations imposed by conventional approaches to exposure-response modeling.

A major area of my research focuses on addressing healthy worker survivor bias using causal methods to address health status as a time varying confounder on the causal pathway from exposure to disease. I am interested in chronic heart and lung disease, as well as cancer, in worker populations exposed to fine particulate matter and am following several large industrial cohorts for disease incidence and mortality.
