Dr. Shi’s research focuses on employing massive datasets, including satellite-retrieved high resolution exposures and health data, to investigate how climate change and air pollution influence seniors’ health. More specifically, her research focuses on:
- application of remote sensing in environmental exposure modeling (e.g., predicting high-resolution PM2.5, ozone, NO2, and temperature);
- estimating the health consequences of exposure to air pollution and climate change;
- estimating the link between climate change and air quality, and the mediated health impacts;
- estimating the joint and independent health effects of air pollutant mixtures;
- statistical modeling, e.g., causal modeling and big data approach.
