My research program consists of two lines of inquiry focusing on issues of social inequality, health disparities, and well-being. The first line investigates the factors that protect against or contribute to deleterious health outcomes, with special attention to socially marginalized groups. The second line examines the effectiveness of innovative interventions aimed to improve well-being and reduce disparities in health and education.
