I am interested in the social, economic, and political forces that interact
to produce opportunities and constraints on individuals' freedom to pursue and
achieve their own goals.
I'm currently a post-doctoral fellow at The Ohio State University. I research health disparities and their causes. In particular, I am currently focused on tobacco use, and the evolving marketplace of tobacco products and their effect on health disparities of vulnerable populations such as those living in poverty or isloated rural areas of the US.
My broader interests are in the fundamental societal issues, such as income inequality, from which substance abuse and other troubling manifestations arise.
