Research Interests

My research primarily involves studying differences in various health outcomes between racial and ethnic groups. More specifically, I investigate how partnerships and various social determinants of health impact health behaviors and mortality. Currently, my research interests focus on American Indian health disparities, particularly among those who reside in urban areas.
