I am a health services researcher and sociologist who examines health and health care outcomes among underserved populations. I conduct statistical analyses of nationally representative survey data to identify health disparities alongside thematic analyses of interview data to reveal the processes underlying such disparities. My work focuses on recommending improvements to policy and clinical practice that will reduce disparities. I enjoy collaborating with colleagues from a variety of backgrounds to design and conduct research that addresses the needs of populations of interest.
