Research Summary

My primary research and teaching interests focus on health inequalities across early childhood and adolescence and child and family policies and programs that alleviate social inequalities in health. I broadly examine race/ethnic disparities across the early lifecourse. My research portfolio extends to nonstandard work and the family environment as key predictors of health gaps in early childhood and adolescence. Overall, my research on the social determinants of health is strongly interdisciplinary, embedded in using quantitative techniques, and focuses on child health and development in national and international contexts.
