Research Interests & Projects
My research focuses on chronic disease disparities. I am particularly interested in the social patterning of stressors and the psychobiological mechanisms by which they produce chronic disease.
Current Research: I am currently working with Dr. Sioban Harlow on the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN) focusing on potential mechanisms of chronic disease disparities in mid-life women.
