Dr. Adlakha's research focuses on generating, translating and scaling up evidence for reducing environmental health and social disparities, particularly factors affecting prevention, control and mitigation of chronic and acute non-communicable diseases in populations.
Her interests lie in understanding relationships between the built environment and health; documenting and improving geospatial health disparities; and using and improving measures to quantify obesity-related behaviors (physical activity, diet) and relevant exposures (social and built environment) using GIS, accelerometry, GPS, geostatistical approaches, and other new technologies.
