Biography: 

Laura Corlin's research focuses on characterizing and mitigating the chronic health effects of environmental toxicants. While her primary expertise is in air pollution epidemiology, she is also interested in water quality and water access issues. Through her research, she develops methods to model exposure to environmental toxicants. She also employ causal inference and data science approaches to assess mechanistic questions within observational studies. Corlin's research is grounded in the principles of environmental justice and most of her research has been conducted within the context of community-engaged studies involving participants from immigrant, minority, and indigenous populations.
