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.
