BiographyDr. Peters’ research has focused on the effects of environmental pollutants on cardiovascular disease and cognitive impairment in older adults and on respiratory disease in children. Her research has a unique component in that it explores the complex interactions between physical environmental factors and social determinants of health. She has evaluated the interactive effects of lead exposure and psychosocial factors on incident hypertension and cognition in older adult males. She is involved in research on approaches for determining cumulative risk from chemical and non-chemical stressors in relation to hypertension. Dr. Peters is currently leading research efforts funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Federal Aviation Administration investigating the effects of aircraft noise exposure on cardiovascular health in two large national cohorts.
