My main areas of interest include health and immigration and my research focuses on individual, family, and community well-being.  I am particularly interested in spatial and social determinants of health and other forms of well-being, including poverty and mobility, along the U.S. rural-urban continuum.  I approach my research from an ecological perspective in an effort to inform understanding of the correlates and consequences of social disadvantage, particularly at the intersections of race/ethnicity, spatial inequality, and health, with the ultimate goal of identifying potentially modifiable areas for intervention.
