Associate Professor, Department of Population Health
I am an associate professor in the Department of Population Health, Director of the Section for Health Equity, and Vice Chair for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Department of Population Health.
I am a social and behavioral 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/ethnic and minoritized 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.
