I conduct research on how endocrine disrupting chemicals affect women’s reproductive health. My studies focus on current and emerging chemical exposures that people come into contact with during daily life and how these exposures affect their health. This area of research is relevant because little is known about how these exposures both in isolation and in mixtures affect these important health endpoints. In addition, the exposures I focus on are substances to which a majority of people are exposed. My research portfolio includes studies of endometriosis, occupational health, air pollution exposure, the relationship between pregnancy complications and mortality, and pregnancy and birth outcomes related to chemical exposures.
■ Developing a novel method to measure persistent organic pollutants in relation to endometriosis
■ Ascertaining health determinants among women working in the cleaning industry
■ Evaluating the relationship between nonpersistent chemicals and pregnancy loss
