Dr. Gallagher’s research interests include environmental epidemiology, reproductive health, and child health outcomes. Her areas of expertise include applying Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for exposure assessment purposes and conducting large-scale occupational studies. Since 2001, she has worked as a member of the research team on the epidemiological studies of a Cape Cod, Massachusetts, birth cohort for a variety of outcomes and exposure to the drinking water contaminant tetrachloroethylene (PCE). She is currently a co-investigator on a study quantifying exposure to ultraviolet radiation, as a proxy for Vitamin D, and the risk of multiple sclerosis.
