Research Interests and Responsibilities
Cardio-pulmonary disease epidemiology and prevention; nutrition; blood pressure; environmental health risk factors; air pollution; application of metabonomics methods to large-scale population studies; project management; database management; applied statistics; biobank.
My research focuses on environmental risk factors (nutrition and air pollution) and epidemiology and translational medicine. I collaborate with multidisciplinary research scientists in developing and testing new biostatistical methods for epidemiological data analysis and application of metabolic phenotyping to large-scale epidemiological studies. I am working on several longitudinal epidemiological studies for preventive medicine, exploring sequences of molecular events triggered by environmental exposures and affecting individual cardio-pulmonary disease risk profiles.
