My postdoctoral research focuses on the intersection of plant ecology, public health, and aerobiology. I investigate allergenic pollen in urban areas, from the plants that produce it and the patterns of pollen dispersal, to human exposure and respiratory disease. To do so I conduct observational studies and field surveys, develop statistical models of pollen dispersion, and combine this with human health datasets to assess respiratory health outcomes.
