Our group’s research ranges from statistical methodology, causal inference, machine learning, measures of the environment on cardiovascular, respiratory, and neuro-cognitive health outcomes, environmental justice, and data visualization.

The NSAPH team has established an extensive one-of-a-kind data platform, which is the result of nearly a decade of work acquiring, curating, and linking many massive data sources including Medicaid and Medicare health data, as well as air pollution data, and other climate change exposure data. The platform was created primarily to enable multi-decade, nationwide US studies of air pollution and health. Research enabled by the platform has been explicitly cited as evidence supporting new policies to reduce air pollution exposure and improve health in the U.S.
