Sara 437 research notes and wiki edits

Hello, I'm a cofounder of Public Lab and former Director of Toxics and Health Research. In 2012 I left Public Lab's Staff to become an Assistant Professor of Health Sciences and Sociology/Anthropology at Northeastern University. 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.
