Biography:

Dr. Shenassa's work concerns the interaction between individual and social determinants of health. This work, which is primarily focused on maternal and child health, can be further categorized into two general areas: 1) developmental sequelae of in utero exposures to toxins; and 2) social epidemiology of injury.

Interests

Dr. Shenassa's main research interest concerns the interaction between individual-level and social-level determinants of health. He is currently investigating social epidemiology of intentional and non-intentional injuries (for example, the effects of community-level availability of firearms on suicide and homicide rates). His other major areas of work regard long-term sequalae of in utero exposure to tobacco smoke, and application of social science findings to the field of public health and the methodological issues involved in such applications.
