Research Interests & Projects

My research focus is to understand the relationships between psychosocial, behavioral, and biological risks related to poor reproductive outcomes.  I use community based participatory research methods in large population-based randomized clinical trials to test interventions aimed at improving behavioral and biological risks in minority pregnant women.  I also have an interest in the reduction of infant mortality, both in the United States in minority populations, as well as globally in resource-poor countries.
