Research information:

I specialize in methods for risk assessment and risk management, with a particular focus upon human health risks. I am particularly interested in the science policy interface that mediates between the synthesis of facts and the formulation of policy defining conclusions. Methods of particular interest include uncertainty analysis, applied decision analysis, demography, and health economics. I have applied these types of tools in the context of interpreting animal bioassay evidence in the support of regulatory determinations of chemical safety, and am currently applying demography approaches to the study of summary measures of population health (such as DALYs, QALYs, PEYLLs and alike).

Research information:

My current research focuses on the relations between transnational economic integration ("globalization") and social determinants of health: the conditions under which people live and work. How is the emergence of a global marketplace affecting opportunities to lead a healthy life? Who wins, and who loses? How will the worldwide financial crisis we are now experiencing affect health disparities between rich and poor?
