Her research in PRESTO primarily focuses on air pollution, heat, and endocrine disrupting chemical exposures in relation to reproductive health. She is PI of a BUSPH-funded pilot study involving monitoring of personal heat exposures in PRESTO. She is also a co-investigator of the Study of Environment, Lifestyle and Fibroids (SELF), where she is investigating the effect of exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals on risk of uterine fibroids.
