Associate Professor, Department of Population Health
I am a social epidemiologist with extensive experience in the use of, among other methods, community-based participatory research, mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative) approaches, evidence-based strategies, dissemination and implementation science, and multidisciplinary teams to address community-level health disparities.
I work in collaboration with multisector coalitions made up of local and national community-based organizations, governmental agencies, service delivery organizations, and researchers from discrete disciplines.
My research examines the social and cultural factors that influence health and health outcomes in racial and ethnic communities, with a particular focus on Asian Americans. I employ a social determinants of health framework to implement and evaluate evidence-based strategies in community settings, focusing on cultural relevance and impact and finding more effective channels through which to translate research into practice.
