Dr. Fabian's research focuses on multi-stressor environmental health problems, combining expertise in systems science, environmental engineering, environmental health, respiratory infectious diseases, and geographical information systems (GIS). She is currently the PI of an NIEHS grant building the first systems science model linking housing, indoor air quality, individual and neighborhood stressors with lung function and pediatric asthma outcomes. She is also 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. Other research interests include developing cumulative exposure models at a Superfund site; understanding infectious disease transmission using systems science models; and applying spatial statistical methods to study the combined effect of chemical and non-chemical exposures on pediatric neurodevelopmental outcomes.
