Description: 

My research focuses on building adaptive capacity to address the health impact of occupational, environmental and natural hazards, particularly among vulnerable populations. Specifically, I examine the health effects of climate change including heat-related illness among farm-workers and other vulnerable populations, household- and community-level preparedness to disasters, efforts to increase adaptive capacity for climate change among local health departments. I also study best practices to implement epidemiologic methods to examine the health impact of disasters.
