I am currently an assistant professor at the International Development, Community, and Environment Department at Clark University. I am an applied medical anthropologist and health researcher by training and I focus on health inequities and disparities of vulnerable and “hidden” populations.

My main tools of research are data analytics, ethnographic methods, social network analysis, storytelling, participatory community-based research, and university/public health departments collaborations.
