Current Public-Health Related Activities:

My research directly involves public health concerns using population based epidemiology approaches to address children and adolescents mental health and behavioral outcomes.A particular area of work I focus on is understanding of how environmental toxicants’ exposure affects children’s and adolescents’ neurocognition and behavior. I’m currently a PI of the NIEHS funded (R01) China Jintan Cohort Study.  I’m currently a member of the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology. I teach Environmental Toxicology: Risk Assessment and Health Effects at the School of Nursing.
