My research interests center on social determinants of health and disparities in health care and outcomes in community settings and diverse populations. My current program of research falls under two themes: (i) the analysis of health disparities in a multinational context, with a particular focus on the cognitive function among older adults; and (ii) the integration of patient-reported social factors in cardiovascular outcome research. As an interdisciplinary researcher, I am also interested in using digital technology to promote disease management in patients with cardiovascular disease.
