About the author:
I study maternal-child health and young children’s development. Currently, I am interested in studying Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) and how these factors contribute to health outcomes of mothers and babies, particularly those who have low resources.
What I want to achieve:
I like to contribute to the understanding of infant and toddler development, and how improving maternal health leads to better child outcomes.
My previous positions:
- Co-Director of the Touch Research Institute, University of Miami, Miami, Florida
