Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary research interests are to: 1) Eliminate health disparities by working with individuals and their communities to develop prevention interventions that reach underserved populations; 2) Inform health care system delivery of prevention that is patient and community-centered. My research integrates perspectives and methods from public health, social sciences, clinical science and public engagement because finding solutions to health disparities in an increasingly diverse U.S. population requires working across disciplines and beyond the walls of academia.
