Research Interests

Spatial statistics with applications to air pollution studies
My students and I develop novel methods and models for statistical dimension reduction and prediction for high dimensional air pollution data. These methods solve issues related to dimensionality and spatial misalignment in health effects studies of exposure to air pollution mixtures. The methods can also be used to obtain exposure estimates in air pollution cohort studies. See related publications below.<...
