About Me

I received a BA in Public Health Studies and Earth & Planetary Sciences from Johns Hopkins University in 2014, an MHS in Environmental Health Sciences from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2015, and my PhD in Environmental Health Sciences from Columbia’s Climate and Health Program, under the mentorship of Drs. Marianthi-Anna Kioumourtzoglou and Patrick Kinney.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, under the supervision of Drs. Itai Kloog and Maayan Yitshak-Sade.

My research interests can be largely divided into three areas. First, I am interested in the health effects of air pollution in developing countries, where such studies are currently still lacking. Recently, I have become increasingly involved in utilizing existing satellite data for air pollution health studies, particularly in the assessment of the sensitivity of epidemiologic studies to exposure model choice. Lastly, I am interested in studying the effects of climate change on air pollution, quantifying the health impacts of climate changed-induced air pollution in China and the United States.

Recently, my work has been focused more on air pollution exposure modeling and ensemble-based modeling approaches. Current projects include evaluating policy impacts of air pollution levels in New York City and building a fine-scale NO2 model over Mexico City.
