I am an epidemiologist involved community-driven, policy-relevant applied epidemiology and public health research to study social and environmental determinants of health inequities, and possible interventions that could reduce these inequities.
Much of my research is in partnership with community-based organizations, with the goal of systematically documenting health inequities using community-based participatory research approaches and harnessing the power of research-practice partnerships. I also study interventions beyond the health sector that could reduce inequities in health and well-being.
I have experience doing multidisciplinary research and evaluation on topics including public health, education, youth, civic engagement, and the environment. I conduct research locally, nationally, and internationally, in English, Spanish, and French.
