Dr. Rodriguez's research analyzes the political causes and consequences of socioeconomic mortality selectivity and racial disparities in health (with an emphasis on health-related mortality and infant mortality). He studies how policies enacted by the party in power affect reproduction, survival, and physiological dysregulation in humans, and how these, in turn, affect socio-political processes like electoral outcomes and the distribution of resources.
