Danya Keene's mixed-methods research broadly explores how social policies contribute to health inequality, with a particular focus on issues related to housing, neighborhoods and place. For example, her work has examined how urban revitalization and public housing demolition may affect the health of low-income African American communities in Chicago, Atlanta and nationally. She is also conducting mixed methods research that explores linkages between home foreclosure and health. Dr. Keene is also interested in social stigma and its relationship to geographic and social inequality.
