My research is divided in three branches. The first branch focuses on questions related to activity space, health inequality, and social stratification. The second branch focuses on infectious diseases. I am particularly interested in inequalities in mosquito-vector borne disease outcomes and human-mosquito interactions. From a methodological point of view, I am interested in leveraging spatial, GPS, and individual-level real-time data to understand the (re)production of inequality.
I believe social reality is highly complex, thus we ought to understand it from a complex system and interdisciplinary perspective. This is reflected in my research, where I have collaborated with professionals from a wide range of disciplines including physics, medicine, or ecology.
Some of my recent work has explored inequalities in daily mobility during the de-escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain and the effects of economic recessions on mortality inequalities.
I am currently working on three projects: my qualifying paper, which explores the relationship between local and extra local residential disadvantage and residential confinement among older adults in Chicago; a collaboration with Professor Erin York-Cornwell in which we aim to estimate the effect of activity space span and contextual measures on the health of older adults; and a collaboration with Nathália Santos, a fellow Ph.D. student, where we are estimating the individual, latent, and real-time correlates of EMA uptake and attrition.
