General Research Areas:
Social determinants of health, health disparities, social policies as determinants of health, life course health
My research is focused on how health disparities in adulthood are shaped by conditions throughout one's life. So far that means I have examined the relationship between childhood poverty and adult health through an intersectional lens, and I have used path analysis to explore if the relationship differs based on the particular age of poverty exposure. My dissertation focuses on welfare reform as a structural determinant of health inequalities. I will examine how welfare reform in the mid-1990s shaped the long-term health of eligible children.
