    Postdoctoral Scholar, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in elucidating factors that contribute to initiation, maintenance, and exacerbation of substance use, as well as problematic substance use consequences. To date, I have largely focused on investigating psychosocial aspects of social drinking experiences via naturalistic, experimental, and meta-analytic studies.

    I additionally seek to use scholarly advocacy to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion within clinical and academic spaces.

    Priya Fielding-Singh

    Postdoctoral Scholar, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    BioI am a Sociologist and Postdoctoral Fellow in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at the Stanford Prevention Research Center. My research examines health, gender, and social inequality.

    My primary research agenda investigates health disparities across class, race, and gender in the United States. I draw on both qualitative and quantitative methods to understand how neighborhoods, schools, and families shape our health behaviors and outcomes. My work has been published in journals such as Social Science & Medicine, Obesity, Sociological Science, and the Journal of Adolescent Health.

    I hold a Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University, a M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Bremen, and a B.S. in Education and Social Policy from Northwestern University.

    BioI am a postdoctoral fellow at the meta-research and innovation center at Stanford, METRICS, with a focus on the validity of meta-analysis and other methodologies, particularly within social science.

    I completed a PhD in Economics at the University of Bergen in 2022, where my dissertation was focused on bias in meta-analysis. In addition to meta-analysis, my work is related to testing and advancing methods and practices to achieve a higher level of generalizability, robustness and reproducibility in scientific work.
