My research focuses on health effects of occupational exposures and prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses.
• Musculoskeletal disorders in health care workers
• Health effects from chemical exposures (pesticides, cleaning products)
• Organizational and occupational factors, safe work practices
• Occupational health surveillance
• Evaluation of impact of interventions at individual, organizational, and regulatory levels
