Lydia is working on the Detroit Neighborhood Health Study (DNHS) and Life Course Socioeconomics, Acculturation, and Type-2 Diabetes Risk Among Latinos (NINOS).
Lydia's research interests include:
Lydia joined the Aiello Research Group as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 2014. She received her doctorate in epidemiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a pre-doctoral fellow on UNC’s infectious diseases training grant. Her dissertation research focused on identifying factors that influence the implementation of care and outcomes of HIV-exposed infants in the Democratic Republic of Congo. As a post-doctoral fellow, Lydia is working with the Aiello Research Group to identify social-biological mechanisms involved in the production of long-term health outcomes. Lydia’s research incorporates a unique life course and global health perspective that is strongly influenced by her background in pediatric HIV, as well as in biological anthropology.
