My research focuses on examining cardiovascular and respiratory effects of ambient air quality using population- and panel-based approaches. I lead several large-scale time-series studies of ambient air quality and acute morbidity, with specific interests in assessing the health impacts of air pollution, meteorological conditions, and weather extremes. My research also includes field investigations, with detailed exposure and health outcome data collected in panels of susceptible individuals.
