I am a Biological Anthropologist and Data Scientist researching disparities in longitudinal health, child growth, and reproductive outcomes. My research integrates health, socio-ecological, and genetic data to assess human variation and health disparities in a biosocial framework using Bayesian models.
I work with three ongoing field studies in Dominica, Bangladesh, and Argentina researching health, growth, and biodemography in rural and Indigenous populations. I have also begun working with NIH data from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to address disparities in reproductive and maternal health in the US.
