My main general research interest is in the assessment of occupational exposures for occupational epidemiology and industrial hygiene.
I am currently working on the development of a job-exposure matrix, using expert ratings of occupational exposures made during several population-based case-control studies of cancer in the greater Montreal area.
I am also involved in the creation of a retrospective occupational exposure databank for the province of Quebec, using measurements made since the 1980s by governmental hygienists in this province.
Statistical modeling of occupational exposures using modern methods (e.g., multimodel inference) to help in identifying determinants of exposures is another focus of my research.
Finally, I am interested in the design and evaluation of performance of sampling strategies in industrial hygiene. Related to that field, another ongoing project aims at providing the industrial hygiene community with tools to interpret industrial hygiene measurements with regards to occupational exposure limits.
