Research Interest

My research is focused on the social determinants of health and well-being and factors related to the emergence and persistence of disparity in health outcomes within vulnerable populations. Current projects include a study of immigrant occupational health, obesity in new immigrant populations, school and community-based interventions that address the emerging problem of childhood obesity – particularly in rural areas, the effects of parental disability on healthy children, defining and measuring stress at the neighborhood level, and the effects of globalization on population health and well-being. I teach graduate-level biostatistics and qualitative research courses in the MPH program at Tufts Medical School, and an undergraduate senior seminar on Globalization and Health in the Community Health Program at Tufts.    Research with Vulnerable Populations includes:          New and existing U.S. immigrants         Boston, MA Puerto Ricans with diabetes         Somerville, MA Haitian, El Salvadorian and African American workers         Somerville and Lowell, MA Brazilian workers         Haitian, El Salvadorian, and African American teens in MA.         Urban and Rural children and families in the U.S.         Elder adults in MA and the U.S.         Parents with a disability
