Biography

I am a Frank H.T. Rhodes Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cornell Population Center and affiliate of the Center for the Study of Inequality. Previously, I completed my Ph.D. in Sociology and Social Policy at Princeton University, where I was a member of the Office of Population Research.

I study racial and socioeconomic disparities in health behaviors in the United States. Using a life course and developmental perspective, I describe how these patterns originate in childhood, consider how acutely stressful experiences contribute to differences, and evaluate the consequences of differences in health behavior for subsequent health and wellbeing. 

My research has appeared in SSM - Population Health, the Journal of Adolescent Health, the Journal of Pediatrics, and the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, among other outlets.
