My passion in research is for social justice, along with the advance of knowledge. In its current iteration, I study social determinants of health in Memphis, TN. In prior chapters, I taught English as a Second Language to agricultural farmworkers and immigrant refugees, and mathematics and ballet to their children. I look forward to collaborating with you in your research.


I am studying urban blight and crime as social determinants of health in Memphis, using statistical and spatial analysis techniques. As a consultant in the biostatistics division, I also collaborate with medical researchers across the UTHSC campus, in obstetrics, pediatrics, surgery, and other areas.
