I am interested in understanding climate change related health impact mediated through ambient air pollution. I am currently exploring the long-term temporal change in the association between PM2.5 and risk of hospitalization, whether disparities exist across individual-level characteristics in this temporal change, and how to incorporate these considerations in estimation of air pollution related health impact under climate change. I am also an enthusiastic rock climber and snowboarder.
