Senior Research Analyst | PhD in Sociology
I am a Senior Research Analyst at Simmons University, where I use my expertise in data analysis to inform evidence-based decision-making.
With a PhD in Sociology from the University of Arizona, I have developed a strong foundation in advanced statistical methods and published multiple articles in top academic journals.
Before joining Simmons University, I spent four years as a professor of Sociology at Loyola University New Orleans, where I developed a strong rapport with my students and colleagues. With a passion for using data to drive real-world solutions, I am now focused on applying my skills to a range of challenges in the field of data analytics. I am dedicated to delivering high-quality results and leveraging data to inform strategic decision-making.
In my research, I used a broad variety of quantitative and qualitative methods, often from a comparative perspective. I published my work in top-tier journals, such as the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Social Science & Medicine, and Socius.
I guest co-edited a special issue of Sociological Perspectives on COVID-19 and society.
I worked with the Louisiana COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force as chair of the COVID-19 Data and Analysis subcommittee. Our report is available at the Southern University System. This project shows the most striking result of this work and provides an important update.
