Research

My primary research interests include understanding the role of neighborhood stress in the formation and maintenance of health disparities, ecological assessment, quantitative methods, and program evaluation.

I am currently working on multiple projects with colleagues at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention focused on individual and neighborhood level predictors of health-related quality of life and well-being. They include 1) studying the impact of childhood abuse on health in adulthood, including the role of the social environment, 2) assessing the impact of local interventions aimed at addressing health disparities by region and 3) utilizing advanced statistical techniques to better understand associations between multiple chronic health conditions and aging.

I am particularly interested in issues associated with housing and poverty. I have worked closely with community programs and neighborhood agencies to identify, develop, and evaluate programs addressing locally determined needs. This work often includes issues associated with homelessness, crime, and built environments.
