Elise Elliott is interested in investigating exposure to multiple environmental contaminants, in particular air and water pollutants, in relation to public health impacts. Her research focuses on exposure assessment and spatiotemporal distribution of environmental contaminants, multiple environmental exposures, and chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, reproductive health, and cancer. She received a Ph.D. in Environmental Health Sciences from Yale University, where she assessed environmental exposures and public health impacts of unconventional natural gas development (“fracking”). She received Bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Philosophy of Science and a Master’s degree in Environmental Biology from Leiden University. She is currently working at the Health Effects Institute on projects related to fracking and air pollution.
