My research focuses on food and nutrition security, dietary quality, and healthcare access as determinants of health. Current projects explore health inequities, causes and consequences of food and nutrition insecurity, and healthcare access among adults on probation supervision, evaluating the transition of healthcare from jail to the community for people with HIV, HIV prevention, and unmet nutritional needs among people participating in methadone treatment programs. I am also interested in AAPI health equity.
