Currently, I am interested in researching how immigration and race intersect with health "advantages" and "disadvantages. Specifically, I focus on researching how race and immigration status intersect with health outcomes within minority groups in order to investigate what factors drive the Hispanic/Immigrant Paradox in the US. In the past, I researched how immigration status interacts across Hispanic groups from an environmental justice perspective.
