Projects

P1: Metals, critical windows of exposures, epigenetics, and late life cognitive function

This study examines the association between prenatal and early childhood metal exposures and late life cognitive function, as well as the role of adult metal exposures and whether early life metal exposures modify the effect of adult exposures.

P2: EV miRs in cognitive function decline associated with early life metal exposure

This project conducts laboratory-based mechanistic studies to unravel critical biological pathways that contribute to cognitive aging associated with exposures to environmental metal contaminants.

P3: Spatial patterns of metals and metal mixtures in drinking water

This project develops a novel statistical tool to forecast the contribution of Superfund sites to heavy metal mixtures in private wells and will evaluate the effectiveness of water treatment technologies to remove heavy metal concentrations in public water supplies.

P4: Designing the next generation of highly selective sorbent materials for remediation of target inorganic contaminants in aqueous systems

We propose to revolutionize sorbent design by combining novel polymer and nano-science technologies with quantum mechanical simulations, machine learning, and molecular mass transport models.
