Professional Interests: Dr. Paulin is a physician-scientist practicing adult pulmonary and critical care with a research focus on non-tobacco related environmental exposures including occupational exposures and air pollution. Her primary interest is in indoor air pollution, including particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide, and examines how indoor sources and home behaviors influence concentrations of these important pollutants. Her work explores how these airborne exposures impact clinical outcomes in individuals with respiratory disease, focusing on those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). With the support of a NIEHS Career Development Award, Dr. Paulin is currently investigating the relationship between indoor air pollution, respiratory health outcomes, and mucociliary clearance in a longitudinal cohort of individuals with COPD.
