My research interests lie in the area of Health and Medical Geography, with an emphasis on the nexus between human and environmental health and how it pertains to social justice. I am particularly interested in maternal, infant, and child health. My research consists of examining birth outcomes in the mid-Michigan Region, assessing how environmental and social factors influence birth outcomes in this area. I am viewing this topic through an environmental justice lens. I am utilizing a combination of Geographic Information Systems, epidemiological methods, and multi-level analysis.
