Research

I study how the environment influences human health; how the individual, home, and neighborhood environment shapes health behaviors and disease processes; all with the goal of helping people understand that health starts where they live. I investigate the interaction between health and environment using explainable artificial intelligence approaches to machine learning and methods from neuroscience and psychology.
