Research Summary: My research involves developing statistical methods for estimating health risks associated with exposure to mixtures of environmental pollutants. Specifically, I am working on developing a model to identify microenvironments such as home or work and associated events such as cooking or smoking where exposures to environmental pollutants may vary. I plan on using my new model to understand personal exposures throughout a typical workday and commute in a local area such as Fort Collins. My research also includes developing theoretically justified ways of imputing missing data to improve estimates and inference.
