Nicole DeVille is a postdoctoral research fellow in The Spatial and Contextual Exposomics and Epidemiology Laboratory at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Her current projects focus on the impact of location-based exposures (air pollution, greenspace, neighborhood socioeconomic status) on health. She is also contributing to a landscape analysis of nature and health for the National Geographic Society. As a member of the Spatial Epidemiology Research Group at University of California, Irvine, Nicole examined spatiotemporal patterns of risk-taking behaviors at the neighborhood level and investigated associations between mixtures of prenatal environmental exposures and other sociodemographic characteristics and manifestations of risk-taking behavior (teen births) in adolescence. Her broad research interests include epidemiology, environmental health, maternal and child health, mental health and wellness, health disparities in Pacific Islander and Indigenous populations, and public health education.
