Clinical Assistant Professor

Dr. Alexis Merdjanoff is a scholar working at the intersection of public health and sociology.  Her work primarily explores how social inequalities shape the impact of disaster on health, recovery, and resilience, particularly for vulnerable populations.  She aims to reveal important contextual factors that can propel affected residents on different paths of post-disaster recovery.  Her current research considers how exposure to traumatic events influences health over the life course.
