Personal profile


I am a highly trained epidemiologist, bio-statistician and exposure scientist with over 15 years of experience. My research focus primarily on the assessment of the human exposure and the related health effects of dangerous substances such as bio-aerosols, indoor-air allergens, pesticides, inorganic dusts, nanomaterials, and other chemical agents as well as of physical and psychological exposures. I have substantial experience on the assessment of exposure to microbial dusts and their effect on respiratory health particularly among agricultural working populations and a strong interest on the use of statistical modelling as a method for improving quantitative exposure and risk assessment. I have been involved in several national and international epidemiological and consultancy projects focusing on a diverse range of populations including children.
