Sara 441 research notes and wiki edits

Hello, I'm a cofounder of Public Lab and former Director of Toxics and Health Research.

At Northeastern I'm part of developing an interdisciplinary Social Science Environmental Health Research Institute (SSEHRI). I continue to be involved in Public Lab as a researcher and organizer.
