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.
