My research focuses on addressing the influence of geographic contextual factors throughout the life-course, including access to green space, on cardiovascular health, cognitive decline, and health disparities. I am very interested in integrating high-resolution images from Google Street Views to derive ground-level objective measurements of green space into prospective cohort studies using deep learning algorithms. In related research, I seek to identify biological mechanisms linking geographic context with health through mediation analysis.
