Dr. Fabian combines her expertise in environmental health, environmental engineering, systems science, and geographical information systems (GIS) to study multi-stressor public health problems. She is currently a project lead in the Center for Research on Environmental & Social Stressors in Housing Across the Life Course (CRESSH), applying geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial analytical methods to quantify and describe environmental health disparities across Massachusetts communities, and building cumulative risk models across the life course.
Ongoing projects include developing systems science models linking housing, lung function, and asthma outcomes; constructing land use regression models to estimate historical air pollution exposure; developing cumulative exposure models at a Superfund site; and applying spatial statistical methods to study the combined effect of chemical and non-chemical exposures on pediatric neurodevelopmental outcomes.
