Associate Professor, Department of Foundations of Medicine
I am an associate professor in the Division of Health Services Research at NYU Long Island School of Medicine, with expertise in population health management, health policy and economics, health systems research, and comparative effectiveness research. My research focuses on understanding and addressing health disparities in chronic diseases, including hypertension, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke, by investigating barriers to accessing medical care and healthy food, studying multilevel social determinants of health (e.g., health insurance, food policy, employment) that affect health outcomes, and advancing knowledge in minority health and rural patient care.
I am currently leading an NIH R01 grant to study disparities in cardiovascular disease outcomes, and use secondary data and econometric analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of clinical interventions and community-based interventions on narrowing the gaps in disease prevention and treatment.
Before joining the faculty of NYU Long Island School of Medicine, I was a tenured associate professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the University of Georgia College of Public Health.
