I pursue population health research that focuses on race/ethnic, socioeconomic, and sex disparities in health, health behaviors, and mortality. My research is interdisciplinary--I have published in articles in fields including population health, demography, sociology, psychology, epidemiology, gerontology, and medicine. I teach classes in Epidemiology (undergraduate) and statistics (PhD level). I enjoy mentoring undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds in research. In 1998, I earned my bachelors degree from Aquinas College, and in 2004, I earned my PhD in sociology (with an emphasis in demography) from the University of Colorado Boulder.  I was a Robert Wood Johnson, Health & Society Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania between 2004 and 2006. Check out the talk I gave at TEDxMileHigh, based on my research:
