Dr. Karey earned her PhD in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University of California at Davis in 2018. Upon graduating, she joined the lab of inhalation toxicologist Dr. Terry Gordon, as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Her research has centered on characterizing the toxicity of popular alternative-tobacco products, including electronic-cigarettes and hookah waterpipes, in cohorts of users. Of particular interest are unique e-cigarette constituents and behaviors that may lead to novel (and vaping-specific) health risks. During her tenure at NYU, Dr. Karey has also authored several vaping papers aimed at both clinical and tobacco-research audiences. These include an invited commentary that discusses the ongoing difficulty comparing the relative risks of different tobacco products and a comprehensive review of e-cigarette toxicity.
