Dr. Ghalib Bello is a faculty member in the Division of Biostatistics at the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health in the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York. Dr. Bello's research interests are in environmental health, aging, genetic epidemiology and risk prediction for personalized medicine. His current research focus is on the development of statistical methodology for rigorous quantitative assessment of the health effects of exposure to complex mixtures of environmental pollutants. He is also involved in efforts leveraging data mining techniques to build risk models for the prediction of life expectancy and onset of various aging-associated chronic diseases. His work in this area explores novel machine learning and network-based approaches for the quantification of cumulative disease burden and aging-related physiological dysregulation.
