My primary research interests include political economy, income inequality, economic development, social networks, and health. My dissertation is a quantitative study of how income inequality, economic development and distribution of political power impact health disparities at the global, country, and county/local area. My other research focuses eHealth interventions and comparative political economy. Please see my research page for details.

My work appears in the Journal of Health and Social BehaviorInternational Journal of Comparative Sociology, and Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking.

When I am not doing research, I enjoy gaming (video and tabletop), working with electronics, and attending the occasional convention. I also enjoy reading mystery novels.
