Research and Teachings
Dr. Bowes's research interests are interdisciplinary with a focus on the human-environment nexus, particularly as it relates to health outcomes due to health disparities. Her work pioneers the field of wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE), where she leverages community wastewater to analyze human excreted biomarkers indicative of various aspects of human health at population-scale in order to encourage inclusive and data-driven decision-making. Utilizing multiomic techniques, topics of investigation involve a myriad of applications including dietary behavior/food insecurity, chronic illness, microbiomes, infectious disease, and environmental exposures, and forming links to social determinants of health. This approach aims to ultimately enrich data acquisition for environmental public health purposes and advance health equity.
