I am a Sociologist and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at the Stanford University School of Medicine. My research examines health, gender, and social inequality.
My primary research agenda investigates health disparities across class, race, and gender in the United States. I draw on both qualitative and quantitative methods to understand how neighborhoods, schools, and families shape our health behaviors and outcomes. My work has been published in journals such as Social Science & Medicine, Sociological Science, and the Journal of Adolescent Health.
I hold a Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University, a M.A. in Cultural Studies from the University of Bremen, and a B.S. in Education and Social Policy from Northwestern University.
