Research

My research interests involve social determinants of health, racial/ethnic and gender health disparities, and substance use epidemiology, including research focused on tobacco-related health disparities and substance use disorders in marginalized populations.

Specifically, my recent work focuses on long-term health consequences of exposures to interpersonal and structural discrimination with a focus on how these determinants shape substance-related health disparities—including polytobacco use and poly substance use—by gender, race/ethnicity, and sexual orientation status, while paying particular attention to the salience of intersectionality on the experiences of discrimination. I’m also interested in ways in which discrimination impacts different forms of substance use uptake and transitions over time.

I’ve also done some work surrounding perceptions and behaviors around tobacco and e-cigarette use in Appalachian youth and social determinants of breast cancer risk and survival in non-Hispanic White and Hispanic women.
