I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Health Section for Health Equity at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. 

My research is centered on the structural determinants of health with a focus on cardiovascular disease and psychosocial factors, including quality of life and depression. I specifically examine populations of older adults, with a particular focus on Asian Americans, and how neighborhood environments modify determinants of health at later stages of and across the life course. My research is motivated by a commitment to promoting health equity for historically marginalized communities through meaningful, community-engaged research and collaborations.

I currently serve on the Resources Centers of Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) National Coordinating Center Scientific Advisory Board and American Public Health Association (APHA) Aging and Public Health Section Program Planning committee. I am also an Associate Fellow in the University of Pennsylvania Leonard Davis for Health Economics.

Previously, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Population Health at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. I earned my BA in Integrative Biology and Asian American Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, MPH in Community Health and Education from Touro University California and PhD in Health Promotion and Heath Behavior with a minor in Biological Data Science from Oregon State University.
