Dept. of Environmental Health Sciences Guest Seminar: The regional and urban air quality impacts from future fuel diversity in China

The fuel diversity, such as promotion of electric vehicles and biofuels, has been considered as one the most promising policy options by government and the stakeholders. In this study, we developed comprehensive emission inventories with spatial, temporal, and fuel-cycle considerations to address the complicated emission changes for fuel diversity policies.

Dept. of Biostatistics Seminar: Semi-Markov Modeling of Disease Progression with Back-Transitions Using Panel Data - Application to Depression Remission

Disease processes are not necessarily progressive and back-transitions may occur. High rates of censoring must be accounted for in the model, especially when using electronic health record data.

Life Course Intervention Research Network (LCI-RN) Seminar: Maternal Depression and the Intergenerational Transmission of Self-Regulation in a Nationally Representative Sample of American Families

A growing number of studies imply that strengthening EF and reducing behavior problems during early childhood can positively influence health and development throughout school and life. In fact, longitudinal research indicates that EF-related skills in kindergarten predict outcomes at age 25, including high school graduation, employment, and arrests.
