Dean and Professor, College of Health and Human Services
My research is aimed at identifying environmental exposures that impact human health, particularly fertility and children’s health.
■ LIFE Study – understanding how endocrine disrupting chemicals affect couples’ ability to become pregnant and carry a pregnancy to delivery
■ ENDO Study – understanding endocrine disrupting chemicals and gynecologic diseases, particularly endometriosis
■ Exposome – understanding the totality of environmental exposures and health across the lifespan: how gynecologic and urologic diseases impact adult health.
