Research interests 

My research aims to understand and address the social and ecological determinants of global health and development. In particular, I am interested in how factors such as poverty, migration, food security, and climate change interact and shape health and development outcomes. I conduct research in close collaboration with community partners and organizations with the goal of co-producing information to support decision-making and action.

Key areas of research include migration and health, community food security, healthcare and social service access, and climate change and health. Regionally, I work in Central America, Southeast Asia, East Africa, and Canada.
