My program of research examines the health of families impact by incarceration. Incarcerated people often represent the most marginalized within our society, including economic minorities, people of color, and undocumented citizens. I use both qualitative and quantitative research to identify the health, well-being, and resilience processes of individuals and families impacted by incarceration. In this way, my future research will employ population health data to better understand the effects of incarceration on family inequality and health. I also review and write about policies (e.g., Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act) that impact the health, well-being, and equality of families with an incarcerated parent.
