With five years of learning experience in the environmental science and health fields, I have been concerned about the health impact of environmental pollutions and occupation related hazards. These include endocrine disruptors, persistent organic pollutants, and circadian rhythm disruption. Women and children are among the most vulnerable populations and are my primary research interests. Recently, I also begin to look at psychosocial effects on the health of women and children. I am interested in the use of biomarkers, especially genetic methods in epidemiologic research, to objectively represent exposures and/or health outcomes and to understand the underlying mechanism as well as disease susceptibility.
