Research Interests & Projects

My interests involve social determinants of health and substance use epidemiology, including research focused on tobacco-related health disparities and substance use disorders. I'm particularly interested in work concerning vulnerable populations such as racial and ethnic minorities and the LGBTQ community. Additionally, I’m interested in the health effects of long-term exposures to upstream social/structural phenomena (e.g., discrimination and structural racism) in marginalized groups.

Current Research: I’m currently working with my advisor/mentor, Dr. Nancy Fleischer, on a recently funded grant from the NIH and FDA’s Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science (TCORS).
