Bio

Dr. Harris conducts research in the interdisciplinary field of Mathematical Biology. Her most recent work focuses on Pharmacokinetic Modeling, an area or research that lies at the intersection of Mathematics, Biology, and Chemistry. This research involves the development and utilization of mathematical models called physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models that describe the fate of a toxic chemical in the body following external exposure to the chemical (e.g. inhalation, ingestion).
