Marshall's research is at the intersection of air pollution and public health, in exposure assessment: understanding how much pollution people breathe, and how to reduce those exposures. His specific areas of focus are
(1)  Air pollution impacts of urban form;
(2)  Air pollution and health impacts of transportation energy consumption;
(3)  In situ measurement of fine particles in developing countries.
