I am a social epidemiologist interested in investigating strategies to mitigate gender, racial, and class-based inequities in health throughout the life course. I earned my BS in microbiology at the University of Rhode Island in 2008, my MPH in epidemiology and biostatistics at Oregon Health & Science University in 2015, and my PhD in epidemiology at the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health in 2019. For my dissertation, I investigated the impact of precarious tipped-service work on health among reproductive-aged women and estimated the effects of increasing the tipped worker wage on maternal and child health. As a postdoctoral scholar, I am building on my dissertation work by examining the long-term implications of precarious employment later in the life course. Given the role of stress and depression in accelerating cognitive decline, examining the implications of precarious employment for cognitive decline was a natural next step for my research. I am a member of an interdisciplinary team of scientists with a shared mission of conceptualizing a multidimensional measure of employment quality and its impact on health across the life course in the US context.
