Research Interests: The intersection of immigration/migration and health. More broadly, I’m interested in racial health disparities, social epidemiology and the research-to-policy pipeline. My primarily research experience has been focused on smoking cessation interventions for Asian American male smokers. My doctoral training will focus on the use of spatial methods to better understand health disparities in urban immigrant populations. Ultimately, my goal is to contribute to the establishment of targeted interventions and research-driven policy.
