Research Interests:

Araceli's research interests focus on the interaction of the environment and human health. This consists in the understanding of the processes that environmental factors (chemical, biological or physical agents) undergo through transport and final impact or uptake by humans. The objective is to identify, assess, and measure exposures with the ultimate aim of preventing adverse health.
