How Housing Affects Your Health

Our lab is focused on understanding the population health implications of the current affordable housing crisis, and more broadly examining the mechanisms and processes through which housing access contributes to health and well-being. Our research also considers the health implications of an ongoing history of racialized housing and urban policies that have constrained housing access for non-white Americans. As such, we consider housing as a mechanism through which racial disparities in population health are produced and reinforced. Ultimately, our research seeks to inform policy interventions to improve housing access and to reduce health inequalities.
