As a clinical epidemiologist, I have a biopsychosocial research program that focuses on social predictors, biological mechanisms, and outcomes related to pediatric mental health and well-being. I work primarily with cohorts of vulnerable populations defined by low socioeconomic status, rural geography, minority race/ethnicity, chronic childhood health conditions, and more recently child maltreatment. Increasingly, I am utilizing biomedical research to better understand DNA methylation (DNAm) in the first years of life as an epigenetic marker of health-risk,-resilience, and -disparities across the life course.
