Senior Research Scientist
The area of my research interest is the adverse effects of air pollution on health. In particular, my area of expertise is analyzing the short-term effect of air pollution on mortality and morbidity by means of time series analysis.
Other research interests include studying the mechanisms linking the inhalation of ambient particles to an acute exacerbation of cardiovascular or respiratory disease; the evaluation of the health effects of air pollution and temperature extremes; and socio-economic influences on health.
I am also interested in developing innovative statistical methodologies in environmental epidemiology.
