I was doing research on how the structural factors within a neighborhood environment influenced depression in adults, specifically depressive symptoms. Through their guidance and mentorship, I created a measurement of exposure to neighborhood structural conditions using census data and combined several tract indicators into a single index measuring exposure to neighborhood vulnerability.
This space greatly enhanced my scholarship and understanding of this phenomenon in organizational settings. As a result of our work together, I published two research papers in interdisciplinary journals with a stellar group of researchers at ISR. Our research continues to inform my understanding of health and inequality.
