Research description

My methodological research areas include the analysis of correlated environmental chemical exposures, evaluating and predicting environmental and occupational risk factors for cancer, and modeling spatial correlation in cancer risk. I have extensive experience modeling relationships in environmental exposure data in epidemiologic studies. Some of this work deals with estimating health effects of many correlated environmental exposures for cancer risk.
