Nicole Cardello Deziel
Assistant Professor of Epidemiology (Environmental Health)
Dr. Nicole Deziel's research is designed to enhance understanding of the interface between exposure to environmental agents and human disease. She is focused on evaluating, improving, and developing exposure estimates for application in environmental epidemiologic studies. She investigates critical methodologic issues, such as (1) what is the relative contribution of different routes of exposure to an environmental agent, (2) what are the between- and within-participant variability in exposure measurements over time, and (3) how well do surrogate exposure measures, such as questionnaire responses or GIS-based approaches, compare to biological or environmental measurements? She has investigated these questions within the context of three classes of pollutants: pesticides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and persistent organic pollutants. Dr. Deziel is particularly interested in women’s health and children’s health outcomes.
