Research Interests

Dr. Nuckols' primary interest is in exposure assessment in population-based environmental health studies. Environmental Health is a broad scientific field. Disciplines involved in training and research in environmental health include epidemiology, biology, engineering, earth sciences, toxicology, and the health sciences. Although each of these disciplines has a very unique niche in the scientific community, in terms of environmental health studies, they tend to share one thing in common--they each require some means of differentiating exposure in the subject population. Dr. Nuckols is director of a research laboratory in the department established to investigate the potential application of advanced technology, such as computer simulation modeling and spatial information systems in exposure assessment for environmental health studies.
