Biography

Aggie (Noah) Yellow Horse is an assistant professor of Asian Pacific American studies and justice and social inquiry in the School of Social Transformation. Prior to joining School of Social Transformation at ASU, she completed her doctorate degrees in sociology and demography at the Pennsylvania State University; and also worked as a political cartographer for a non-profit organization in Chicago to promote equal political representation for racial and ethnic minorities in redistricting (see Map of Chicago Chinatown & Redistricting). She received the Community-based Redistricting Fellowship from the Southern Coalition for Social Justice for her pro bono work in Chicago.

Her research interests and scholarly publications focus on understanding immigrant health and families, the contextual influence on health and families, and social demography. Her research was supported by a predoctoral training fellowship from the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD).
