I'm an epidemiologist by training; I've been working in applied research for 4 years and in research labs for 11 years. My background includes biology, environmental health sciences, and of course epidemiologic and statistical methods. Projects I currently work on primarily focus on evaluation of programs and initiatives with a community health focus, active living, or adolescent health. My dissertation, titled "An Epidemiologic Analysis of Intergenerational Child Maltreatment" explored a social work topic with a public health lens. Current interests I stay on top of include adverse childhood experiences and trauma, active commuting and multimodal transport, yoga and exercise science research, sexual health and HIV prevention, and environmental health more broadly. My interest in staying abreast of the literature is in informing the work I do with current evidence. My research blog covers these topics and yoga more generally.
