As a clinical epidemiologist, I conduct biopsychosocial research to better understand how social factors, biological mechanisms (epigenetics), or health outcomes relate to pediatric mental health and well-being. I am particularly interested in knowing the extent to which different developmental trajectories are driven by low socioeconomic status, rural geography, minority race/ethnicity, chronic childhood health conditions, or childhood maltreatment.
