The central goal of my research is to advance health equity, with a particular focus on illuminating structural and political barriers to health and well-being. Under this broad umbrella, my work falls into two distinct, but overlapping themes: 1.) illuminating disparities in health, social well-being, and access to care, especially for older adults and rural residents, and 2.) investigating the ways in which environment, from immediate living environment to broader geographical context, impacts health.
