Research Focus

My research focuses on the puffing topography and impacts on human health associated with electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). I study these topics by using a combination of informatics and laboratory approaches. More recently, I have begun exploring human biomarkers of harm and exposure in e-cigarette users.
