I am a social epidemiologist focused on the social determinants of health, particularly among adolescents, youth, and infants. More specifically, I am interested in studying the relationship between social and economic contextual factors within counties, neighborhoods, and schools, such as income inequality and social fragmentation and behavioral outcomes including physical activity and dietary intake, and other health outcomes such as, cardiovascular disease, depression, and mortality.
