Dr. Wilson is an environmental health scientist with expertise in environmental justice and environmental health disparities. His primary research interests are related to issues that impact underserved, socially and economically disadvantaged, marginalized, environmental justice, and health disparity populations - including issues such as environmental justice, air pollution, housing disparities, built environment, climate change, drinking water quality, food justice, Port of Charleston, sewer and water infrastructure, goods movement, traffic exposure and health disparities, community-university environmental health partnerships, industrial animal production, exposures for subsistence fishers, and community revitalization.

Current projects focus on population research in several ways. He is performing secondary data analysis to look at burden, exposure, risk, and health disparities in South Carolina; pollution and health issues for underserved populations living near the Port of Charleston; long-term impacts of exposure to chlorine after a man-made disaster; infrastructure disparities and environmental injustice in North Carolina; and environmental health disparities in Tennesee and other southern states.

He is also building a Program on Community Engagement, Environmental Justice, and Health (CEEJH) to study and address health issues for environmental justice and health disparity populations through community-university partnerships and the use of CBPR in Maryland and beyond.
