Organizing Theme
The principle theme of our laboratory is to utilize current technologies to monitor and assess exposure to airborne contaminants and apply innovative control strategies to safeguard human health.

Interprofessional Collaborations
Research performed in our laboratory is enhanced through interprofessional collaborations with experts in both the physical and behavioral/social sciences. Recent collaborations include partnerships with exposure scientists at the University of Washington and Montana Tech and electrical engineers in Boise State’s Department of Electrical Engineering.
