Robert A Canales

Research Interests

Dr. Canales' research interests span the fields of engineering, public health, statistics, and mathematics. This multidisciplinary work takes many forms but primarily focuses on environmental and environmental health topics while using methodologies based in applied mathematics and systems science. Primary themes include personal and residential multimedia exposures (including exposures to consumer products and microbial agents) and interventions, green/smart buildings and the built environment, contaminant transport, indoor air quality, infectious disease transmission, and risk analysis. Methods include data mining/learning, analytics, agent-based modeling, dynamic compartmental modeling, Monte Carlo simulation, parameter estimation, uncertainty quantification, and nonparametric techniques.
