Exposure to air pollution is unavoidable and ranks in the top ten global health risks attributable to non-communicable diseases. The goal of my work is to understand the relationship between exposure to complex mixtures of air pollutants and disease. Research in my laboratory is focused on developing novel analytical approaches to characterise personal environmental exposures to understand how these pollutant exposures can adversely affect health. My group uses mass spectrometry techniques to analyse biological samples for pollutants and metabolites related to air pollutant exposure.
