With a background in industrial and systems engineering my global health research includes four primary areas: 1) Designing well-functioning and culturally-relevant health systems to reach marginalized and resource-poor working communities; 2) Redesigning healthcare processes and workflows with continuous improvement tools and participatory approaches; 3) Strengthening health systems via equitable collaborations with local community stakeholders -primarily in urban poor communities; and 4) Designing effective programs to reduce occupational health disparities among migrant workers in the Americas region (North/Central/South).

Community-Engaged Approach: I use and have adapted the Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) approach -facilitating community-engaged research that is respectful of the complex social, economic, and cultural context of vulnerable, voiceless populations often found in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs).
