I am a medical sociologist and a health services researcher. My research focuses on the social determinants of health and health inequities. I am interested in how social factors (race, ethnicity, culture, gender, socio-economic status), geopolitical factors (region, immigration, geography, physical environment) and health services (health insurance, providers, policies) shape physical and mental health over the life course. I enjoy working in and with the community, as well as with government and private stakeholders to find ways to improve health and well-being.
