I have had a range of mentored research experiences during my educational and medical training, ranging in developmental biology to community-based participatory research. My prior work included conducting a community needs assessment for caregivers of Vietnamese-American children in San Jose, CA. I studied health inequalities and disparities experienced by children with special health care needs. My research has involved using large administrative databases to explore healthcare utilization patterns in Hispanic patients with cystic fibrosis. I investigated the determinants of differential health outcomes of in patients with cystic fibrosis, specifically looking at ethnicity/race, health care utilization, and genetics.
