My research asks questions about human and ecological systems, migration, substance use, and family demography. My research is also international in scope, and I have conducted data collections or field work in the United States, Mexico, China, and Nepal.

To support my research, I use tools to develop apps and conduct statistical analysis. For app development, I use C#, Java, and Xamarin to create mobile apps on Windows, Android, and iOS that collect data for my projects. For statistical analysis, I use R and SAS to test hypotheses and visualize data.
