Elizabeth joined the BME-lab in August 2013 and her
research interests are GIS-based analysis currently applied to water quality
assessment and its impacts on environmental and human health. Elizabethís
masterís work is estimating trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachloroethylene
(PCE) contamination in North Carolina groundwater using space-time covariance
and land use regression models. This work will additionally estimate exposure
to TCE and PCE and cancer incidence. Prior to graduate school, Elizabeth worked
as a research technician with The Water Institute at UNC doing spatial analysis
of exposure and vulnerability of global water resources to climate-related
hazards and assessing the implications of an urban:rural dichotomy in global
drinking water targets.
