She is particularly interested in applying and developing novel methods in this field, identifying vulnerable subpopulations, and understanding the role of the built environment and other neighborhood-level characteristics in these associations. She is a member of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology, and is co-chair of its North American chapter. Her papers have received numerous awards (including papers of the month and the year), and her research is primarily funded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences. Professor Kioumourtzoglou is the Director of the Doctoral Program at the Environmental Health Sciences Department at the Mailman School.
