Lauren is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She studies how social forces shape population health and health inequities, with a focus on infectious diseases like HIV and COVID-19. By asking questions grounded in social theory and using modern epidemiologic methods to answer them, she produces actionable evidence that directly informs public health policy and programs.

Lauren has a background in global health (MS, Duke University ’15) and cultural anthropology (BA, Duke University ’12). She¬†has conducted research in the U.S., Haiti, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, and Angola.
