Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests


My current research investigates the determinants of health for Hispanic patients with cystic fibrosis. Specifically, I am interested in identifying modifiable causes of health inequalities.
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.
During my fellowship and postdoctoral training, my research has involved using large administrative databases to explore healthcare utilization patterns in Hispanic patients with cystic fibrosis.
