Ma, Ping Assistant Professor


My research interest focuses on reducing health disparities in social determinants of health among vulnerable populations using mixed methodology. Specifically, my research focuses on examining how individual SES and psycho-social factors, behavioral, neighborhood environmental factors, and access to health services influence the physical and mental health in low income populations, maternal women, children, racial/ethnic minorities. In addition, I am also interested in developing innovative health behavioral interventions (e.g., smoking cessation) using smart phone and ecological momentary assessment (EMA) method.
