Precision heaLth ANd Exposome (PLANE) Lab

Research Interests

We strive to develop exposome data integration and machine learning algorithms to better discover actionable patterns from big health data. Our research considers the totality of the biological, lifestyle, and environmental factors that impacts population health and provides personalized solutions that allow individuals and neighborhoods to improve their health and wellness. Specifically, we are interested in the following topics:

  • Precision Health
  • Exposome
  • Machine Learning
  • Integration of Multi-Type, Multi-Scale Health Data
  • Environmental, Cardiovascular, and Perinatal Epidemiology
  • Health Disparities
