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 chemical exposures on human health.

We are working on two main projects 1) to examine whether exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (e.g., phthalates, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) is 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.
