Current Research Interests

My area of research is occupational health, and I am interested in prevention measures of occupational injury and illness. I have conducted studies on risk perception and safe work behaviors, musculoskeletal disorders, pesticide exposure and illness, chemical exposure among hospital cleaning workers, and influenza vaccination among health care workers.
