The overall goals of our research are 1) to develop novel approaches for estimating human exposure to environmental contaminants and 2) to better understand the impact of environmental exposures on human health. To meet these goals, we utilize both modeling and measurement techniques, bridging the gap between these two lines of inquiry.

Currently, we are working on two main projects 1) to examine whether exposures to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (i.e., phthalates, perfluorinated compounds) are associated with an increased risk of autism spectrum disorder and 2) to develop environmental fate, transport and exposure models for high-throughput chemical screening and prioritization.
