New paper first online: “Air Pollution and Autism Spectrum Disorders: Causal or Confounded?”. Check it out here!
Our paper on community-level characteristics modifying the association between long-term PM2.5 exposure and mortality, using data from more that 35 million Medicare enrollees across the US, has also been accepted in Epidemiology. Stay tuned for more info!
As a doctoral student I focused on statistical issues related to 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 post-doc, I am very excited to work with Dr. Marc Weisskopf, studying the effects of air pollution on psychiatric symptoms, neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders!
