I am a postdoctoral fellow in the UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. I am also affiliated with the Center for Vulnerable Populations and the Center for Aging in Diverse Communities. The substantive focus of my research is on identifying the origins and lifecourse mechanisms of racial and ethnic health disparities, especially in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Cardiovascular risk factors, such as hypertension and diabetes, may play a critical role in these inequalities, but fully accounting for cumulative risk across the lifecourse and potential social mechanisms is challenging. To address these research questions, my work emphasizes methods to strengthen causal inference, especially methods to quantify and address selection bias. My long-term research goals are to: 1) identify effective strategies to prevent dementia and reduce racial and ethnic disparities in dementia and 2) develop research tools to strengthen causal inference in dementia research.
