A key area of research of mine is the exposure-disease relationship, particularly exposures that involve dust and particulates. I have been involved in research that has explored traditional and non-traditional exposure metrics and exposures directly measured in the body. This work has included the assessment of a variety of compounds and health effects, including organic solvents, metals, respirable dust, silica, asbestiform and non-asbestiform elongate mineral particles, fluoroalkyl compounds and others. This work has been multidisciplinary in scope and has involved the fields of medicine, radiology, toxicology, biostatistics, epidemiology and exposure science. Over the past six years, I have been PI for a multi-disciplinary evaluation of exposures and related health issues in the taconite mining industry of Minnesota.
