Professor, Health Behavior and Health Education.

Dr. Geronimus’ research interests include understanding the social and biological mechanisms that mediate racial disparities in health along the full pathway from the environmental to the cellular level: cultural influences on population variation in family structure and age-at-first birth; the effects of poverty, institutionalized discrimination, and residential areas on health; the strategies used by marginalized communities to mitigate the harmful health effects of poverty and structural racism; and the perturbations public policies sometimes cause in these autonomous protections.
