I'm a sociologist and demographer studying social inequalities in health and well-being. I'm currently a Senior Service Fellow in the Office of Analysis and Epidemiology at the National Center for Health Statistics. My current research examines the health experience of US immigrants and the relationship between housing assistance, neighborhoods, and health.
I received my PhD in sociology and demography from the University of Pennsylvania. My dissertation examined the role of health behaviors in the Hispanic and immigrant longevity advantages in the United States. I did a postdoc in the Population Studies & Training Center at Brown University!
My publications are available here and my CV can be seen here.
My research on the Hispanic Paradox was mentioned in Time, Scientific American, and the New York Times! Check it out.
