Biographical Info

I conduct research aimed at understanding policies and factors in the environment that impact health behaviors. Specifically I have over 16 years of experience as a principal investigator or co-investigator on numerous small and large-scale school and community-level studies designed to examine and reduce modifiable risk factors such as physical inactivity, obesity, and tobacco use. My research program also focuses on better understanding racial/ethnic and cultural differences in health behaviors and environments as they specifically relate to health disparities. My research involves the use of geospatial data analysis techniques, and I am always interested in learning about new methods and technology to assist in capturing more precise or specific measures of the environment.
