Biography

The central goal of my research is to move toward health equity for all, with a particular focus on historically marginalized populations in order to illuminate structural barriers to health and well-being and practical policy solutions. Under this broad umbrella, my work falls into two distinct, but overlapping themes: 1.) illuminating disparities in health and access to care, especially for older adults and rural residents, and 2.) investigating the ways in which environment, from immediate living environment to broader geographical context, impacts health.
