Curriculum Vita


Areas of Interest: Medical Sociology; Death and Dying; Health Disparities; Teaching Pedagogies; The Role of the Third Wave Digital Age on Health Care and Education. 

My main area of research is on how disparities are replicated in the dying process and how social inequalities impact the likelihood of experiencing a "bad" death. A second line of research that I am pursuing explores the role of digital technology on issues and access to both health care and to education.
