Current Research

  • Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety (Center Director)

    The major goals of this project are to train graduate students in industrial hygiene, occupational health nursing, occupational medicine, health services, and industrial safety/ergonomics, and to provide continuing education in these areas to practitioners in these fields and in related professions.

  • Effect-Related Biomarkers of Toxic Exposures (Project Director of Project 6: Human Dosimetry for Assessment of Exposure to Volatile Compounds)

    The major goal of this project is to use toxicokinetic data from controlled human exposures with a physiologically-based pharmacokinetic model to account for individual sources of variation in absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion. 

  • Mechanisms of Heterogeneity in the Lung (Co-Investigator, Project 1, Heterogeneity of Gas Exchange)

    The objective is to characterize the exchange of high and very high solubility gases by the airways of the lung.project will evaluate mechanisms controlling bronchial blood flow; measure physical and physiological parameters affecting airway gas exchange in the sheep lung; quantify airway soluble gas exchange in the sheep lung; assess airway soluble gas exchange in human subjects.

  • Peak Exposures in Aluminum Smelting (Co-Investigator).

    The objective of this project is to develop exposure assessment methods to determine peak exposures to irritant acid gases and to determine such exposures in the aluminum reduction industry. Using a combination of real-time and integrating air sampling methods, a set of exposure/dose metrics will be developed to characterize exposure and pulmonary dose to sulfur dioxide, hydrogen fluoride, and particulate fluorides.
