Chantel Pheiffer

Predoctoral Trainee in Sociology

Pheiffer’s research examines the relationship between migration, health, and place in low and middle income countries. In the context of the health transition occurring in LMICs, paying particular attention to non-communicable disease risk, she considers whether geographic mobility is associated health outcomes such as blood pressure and BMI. She also investigates whether the relationship between health and migration depends on the places to, and from, which individuals move.
