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.
I welcome potential students and trainees to contact me if you are interested in working with me.
