Introduction

Research Interests:
My research field includes epidemiological studies focusing on the health effects of the environment. I am also interested in genetic determinants of health, in particular the joint effects of genetic and environmental factors, i.e. evaluating whether genetic determinants or genetic polymorphisms interact with environmental exposures to modify disease risk (gene-environment interaction).From outcome-oriented approach my research field covers:
• Respiratory epidemiology
• Reproductive epidemiology
From the determinant-orientated approach my research area can be divided into six major fields:
• Water disinfection by-products (DBPs) and reproductive outcomes
• Ambient air pollution and health
• Indoor environment and health
• Occupational environment and asthma
