Personal profile

Research interests

Our research group focuses on social determinants of health and health inequities. Moving forward, we expect the bulk of the research in this lab in the near future to be focused on primordial prevention (i.e., laws and policies and governance processes) associated with child well-being.

We are currently in the process of planning a study on the effects of redistricting plans on child- and family-friend policies since the 1980s.
