I'm a PhD candidate in Public Affairs and Demography at the Office of Population Research and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. My research focuses on the biological mechanisms that link social and economic disadvantage with health disadvantage. I am particularly interested in the role of immune system functioning and stress in propagating health disparities. I also work on understanding the benefits and drawbacks of measuring population health from survey data.
Prior to coming to Princeton, I worked as a Research Associate at the City University of New York Institute for Demographic Research, where I conducted research on health disparities and spatial urban population estimation. I received my A.B. cum laude in Economics from Harvard University.
