My current research involves primarily occupational and environmental epidemiology of Parkinson disease with emphasis on metal neurotoxicity. Current research in my lab includes a cohort study of welders assessing risk of parkinsonism using clinical and biomarkers of parkinsonism, a geographic informations systems study of risk factors for parkinsonism, a study of the relationship between Mn and liver failure, and neuropathology of chronic Mn exposure.
