Personal profile

Research Interests

I am interested in child and adolescent well-being as fostered by community conditions. As a sociologist I work to understand environmental, cultural, institutional and social influences on child and adolescent well being in low resourced and minority communities. I have experience and interest in community engaged scholarship. I currently lead an Evaluation Core in the Smith Child Health Research, Outreach and Advocacy Center.

I have worked in the areas of injury and obesity prevention with a focus on community programming and environmental interventions. My focus is on collaborative research and evaluation to improve the health and well-being of children and their communities with emphasis on socio-ecological approaches to health.
