Place-based approach to estimate drinking water contamination
Drinking water contamination is no longer limited to highly localized incidents; instead, it has become a nationwide public health issue. The traditional study of drinking water and its impact on health has been hindered by the logistical challenge of monitoring water quality. I adopt a place-based approach to address and fill this data gap.
Leverage health big data to improve public well being
Researchers in various policy areas have asked "what works?" and adopted rigorous econometric methods to evaluate policy outcomes. I am hoping to bring that methodology to the environmental health area, evaluating what works? for whom? under what conditions? to support evidence-based public policies.
