Cornely Postdoctoral Fellow, 2009-2011

lorena-estrada.jpgDr. Lorena Estrada-Martinez is the new Paul B. Cornely Postdoctoral Scholar at the Center for Research on Ethnicity, Culture, and Health (CRECH). Dr. Estrada-Martinez is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Public Health (Department of Health Behavior and Health Education; PhD 2009, MPH 2004), with a research focus on the social determinants of health and Latino health disparities. Born in the United States and raised in Puerto Rico, Dr. Estrada-Martinez completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras in 2002. Her dissertation research examined family and neighborhood influences on disparities in youth violent behavior across different Latino populations in the U.S. As part of the Puerto Rican diaspora, Dr. Estrada-Martinez' interests include the continual migration/immigration of Latinos and Afro-Caribbean populations and how variations in these processes across different national/ethnic groups affects mental health and behavioral outcomes. She plans to use her tenure at CRECH to investigate these topics further.
