As an assistant professor at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, I’m interested in causal inference for machine learning, environmental and population health, fairness in precision medicine and geoinformatics. My research studies the impacts of environmental exposures and community characteristics on child and adolescent health.
One of the most notable discoveries of my career was leading a research study that was the first to show that short-term air pollution is associated with psychiatric exacerbations in children. This study also found that children who are from disadvantaged communities are more susceptible to the effects of air pollution.
I started working at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 2016. My research has been published in a multitude of different journals, including Environmental Health Perspectives, Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, Science of the Total Environment, Journal of Open Source Software, Annals of Epidemiology and Health Affairs.
