Research interests

Our research combines experimental model systems, computational toxicology, omics tools, and epidemiological research to study Gene-Environment interactions  and the influence of the exposome, including endocrine disrupting chemicals, pesticides, metals, and particulate air pollution, on wildlife and human health, and elucidate underlying molecular mechanisms. In particular, our research focuses on developmental origins of health and disease with an emphasis on the exposome and underlying molecular mechanisms.

The projects concern the effects of environmental exposures such as endocrine disrupting chemicals, flame retardants, pesticides, metals, particulate air pollution, temperature changes, as well as drugs, psycho-social stressors and ethnical disparities. Ongoing efforts include studies of paternal epigenetic inheritance. We are also focused on the development of New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) for performing chemical risk assessment.
