Methods to Handle Mixtures of (Environmental) Exposures in Health Analyses

This seminar of the Center for Quantitative Methods and Data Science (QM&DS), in partnership with the Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Center at Tufts CTSI and the Data-Intensive Studies Center (DISC) at Tufts University, is Wednesday, January 26, 2:00-3:00PM via Zoom. The topic is Methods to Handle Mixtures of (Environmental) Exposures in Health Analyses, presented by Laura Corlin, PhD.

Traditionally, (environmental) epidemiology has focused on individual exposure-outcome relationships; however, many (environmental) exposures co-occur. How do we identify which of these often highly-correlated exposures most affect health outcomes? Are certain combinations or mixtures important? The methods to answer these types of questions have been rapidly evolving. In this talk, Dr. Corlin will discuss several major approaches in an environmental health context.


Laura Corlin, PhD is an Assistant Professor in Public Health and Community Medicine. She earned her MS and PhD in Environmental Health through the Tufts School of Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Cardiovascular Epidemiology at the Boston University School of Medicine. Her research focuses on developing and applying new methods to assess the health effects of environmental mixtures in observational studies. Through her exposure assessment and environmental epidemiology research, Dr. Corlin seeks to mitigate environmental health disparities. Dr. Corlin also enjoys working with students in and out of the classroom.
