Research Interests

I strive to develop exposome data integration and machine learning algorithms to better discover actionable patterns from big health data. My 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, I am 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
