Postdoctoral Research Associate
Chantel is a social demographer whose research examines the relationship between internal migration and health with a focus on social stratification and gender. As a Postdoctoral Research Associate, Chantel will employ data from the Census Longitudinal Infrastructure Project (CLIP) to examine the long-term demographic and health outcomes of the disaster-affected population of New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Her 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.
