My research focuses on food and nutrition security, dietary quality, and health care access as determinants of health. Current projects explore health inequities, causes and consequences of food and nutrition insecurity, health care access among adults on probation supervision, HIV prevention among carceral impacted individuals, unmet nutritional needs among people participating in methadone treatment programs, and a community health worker training program--Tufts COHERE--to improve linguistic capacity in the health care workforce. I am also interested in AAPI health equity.
