I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Stanford Prevention Research Center studying health disparities in the United States. I focus specifically on differences in preventive health behaviors - including diet, smoking and exercise - across class, race, and gender.

I also work as a Researcher for the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality as part of a team working to launch the National Poverty Study, the country’s first qualitative census of poverty.
