Our research group focuses on the structural and social determinants of health and health inequities (e.g., political, economic, institutional, legal, commercial, ideological determinants). Moving forward, our research is going to focus on the effects of these upstream determinants on children, on the power players who influence these determinants, and on ways in which these upstream determinants can be changed to improve children’s wellbeing.

We are not planning to conduct any additional studies on the impact of early adversities on negative outcomes or on secondary/tertiary prevention strategies aimed at alleviating the impact of adversities.
