Happy New Year all!
What a great start for the new year — two papers accepted for publication: “The Impact of Source Contribution Uncertainty on the Effects of Source-Specific PM2.5 on Hospital Admissions: a Case Study in Boston, MA” at JESEE and “Exposure Measurement Error in PM2.5 Health Effects Studies: A Pooled Analysis of Eight Personal Exposure Validation Studies” at EH.
Stay tuned for more info!
As a doctoral student I focused on statistical issues related with air pollution epidemiology, such as measurement error induced by use of surrogate instead of true exposures to fine particles, methods to deal with multi-pollutant exposures, such as hierarchical models, source apportionment and clustering, and the impact of failure to account for the uncertainty in source contribution estimation on the estimated health effects.
As a postdoc, I am very excited to work with Dr. Marc Weisskopf, studying the effects of air pollution on psychiatric symptoms and neurological disorders!
