Earned Income Tax Credit
A welfare-to-work policy for low-income persons
Stressful environments and selection
Pregnancies at risk of not surviving to term appear especially vulnerable during population stressors.
I examine how population health responds to ambient changes in the environment. A sampling of ambient changes that interest me include economic downturns, extreme cold, the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the introduction of a casino, and new mental health policies. I typically focus my inquiries on pregnant women and persons with mental disorder, as these two populations appear sensitive to unexpected changes in the environment. I intend for my work to inform basic science, social determinants of health, and health policy.
