M. Patricia Fabian, ScDResearch Assistant Professor, Environmental Health
BiographyDr. Fabian combines her expertise in environmental health, environmental engineering, systems science, and geographical information systems (GIS) to study complex multi-stressor public health problems. Aerobiology projects have included studies of bioaerosol disinfection, respiratory infectious disease transmission, and environmental bioaerosol sampling optimization. Ongoing projects include developing discrete event simulation models to evaluate the impact of building interventions on indoor environmental conditions and on pediatric asthma outcomes; constructing land use regression models to estimate historical air pollution exposure; developing cumulative exposure models at a Superfund site; and applying spatial statistical methods to study the combined effect of chemical and non-chemical exposures on pediatric neuropsychological outcomes.
