Research & Publications
Tyler is the program administrator at the SEICHE Center for Health and Justice at the Yale School of Medicine. Tyler’s research activities focus on structural determinants of health among populations historically experiencing marginalization and better understanding how to improve the health of populations disproportionately impacted by oppression. Tyler’s work is motivated by the notion that healthier, more fulfilling communities can be fostered through deep changes to structural oppression, particularly through dismantling structural racism and eliminating wealth inequalities. Prior to graduate school, Tyler was a Thomas J. Watson fellow where he completed an international fellowship titled, "Embodied Poverty: Experiences and Voices of the Poor, Sick, and Surviving." Tyler has a BA in Urban Studies from Rhodes College and MPH from the Yale School of Public Health.
