    Collapse Overview
    I am a population health scholar and postdoctoral fellow at the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies. My overarching research seeks to bridge studies of social/environmental determinants of health and health service research to advance theoretical understanding of how health inequities are generated at the population level and inform policy and community-level interventions.

    My current research is organized around three lines of inquiry: 1) Examining the role of education policies for racial/ethnic integration and choice on health inequities among the US children and adults, 2) Understanding whether and how neighborhood disadvantage generates health inequities in a diverse population, including refugee population in Denmark, 3) Validating the measure of timely diagnosis of dementia and quantifying structural determinants (i.e., racial segregation and geographic distribution of health care resources) associated with racial disparities in delayed dementia diagnosis.

    I work closely with Dr. Rita Hamad in the Social Policies for Health Equity Research Program (SPHERE). For the latter work, I work closely with mentors and colleagues in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, the Department of Neurology, and the Division of Geriatrics.

    Racial Disparities in Delayed Dementia Diagnosis: Structural Determinants and Validation of Timeliness Measures
    National Institutes of Health/National Institute on Aging 1K99AG078405-01Sep 1, 2022 - Aug 31, 2024
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: Innovative use of survey-Medicare Claims linked data holds promise to advance our understanding of disparities in timely ADRD diagnosis and their contributing factors. The goal of this K99 project is to validate the measure of timeliness of ADRD diagnosis with respect to survival, which will support my R00 phase studies examining racial disparities in timely ADRD diagnosis and associated placed-based factors stemming from structural racism.
