• Dr. Abadi is cross-trained in climatology/meteorology and environmental epidemiology. Her research interest focuses on first exploring and better understanding the role of climate and natural environment on public health and, second, on investigating how these impacts vary by demographic characteristics and Social Determinants of Health indicators. Her current projects involve the use of statistical modeling, data management, and machine learning techniques to improve our understanding of how environmental exposure, such as drought and heat waves, is affecting the communities. The proper early warning messaging systems should be backed up by robust scientific research. The ultimate goal of her research is to help improve the allocation of public resources and public health messaging systems to minimize adverse health outcomes driven by climate and weather-related events. Dr. Abadi actively collaborates on multiple federally funded large observational studies to better understand the impacts of drought on health outcomes.
