Title:

Assoc Dean of Research

Education/Credentials:
  • Associates of Science: University of Cincinnati College of Applied Science
  • Bachelors of Science: University of Cincinnati College of Arts and Sciences
  • Doctor of Philosophy: The Ohio State University
  • Masters of Public Health: Harvard University School of Public Health

Research/Clinical Interests:

Cross trained as a basic scientist and epidemiologist, my career objectives are to understand how the interplay between genetic predisposition and environment contributes to chronic disease (e.g. cancer and asthma) and to translate my findings into real and measurable changes that improve the outcomes for children and families, particularly those that are living in communities that are most vulnerable as a result of socioeconomics. Importantly, I prefer to use CBPR and mixed methods approaches.
