He is interested in multidisciplinary, community-engaged approaches to addressing population health disparities and collaborative work that is innovative and emphasizes new tools and technologies. Methodologically, his focus is on the intersection between social, environmental, and spatial epidemiologic methods, and their application to both health differences and disparities.
