I am a doctoral candidate in Sociology and Health Policy, and Population Studies Center trainee at the University of Michigan. I study the mechanisms through which inequalities in socioeconomic resources, such as wealth, income, or education, translate to disparities in population health. In my dissertation, I use a variety of historical and contemporary data to investigate how and why cigarette smoking became socially stratified in the United States. My scholarship has been published by the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Annual Review of SociologySocial Science & Medicine, Health Policy and Planning, The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences, and other outlets.
