    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.

  • Astrid Nicole Zamora

    Astrid Nicole Zamora

    Postdoctoral Scholar, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    BioDr. Astrid N. Zamora is a public health researcher and epidemiologist. Her work has utilized robust birth cohort data to examine associations between diet and environmental pollutants with sleep and metabolic health outcomes among adolescents and midlife women.

    Following her Master of Public Health degree at UC Berkeley School of Public Health, Dr. Zamora completed her PhD at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. As a doctoral trainee at Michigan, her dissertation research, funded by a Research Supplement to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research from NIH/NIEHS, focused on examining the interplay between exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals, sleep, and metabolic health risk among pubertal adolescents and peri-menopausal women from Mexico City.

    As a current NHLBI T32 postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Zamora is receiving training in RCT study design and citizen science methods, learning how to bridge her training in epidemiology with community-based research approaches, thereby ensuring that her research agenda maintains a meaningful connection to the community and its real-world context. The goal of her current research, bolstered by her previous and ongoing training, is to explore the interconnections between diet, the built environment, and physical activity. She is particularly focused on understanding how these factors relate to psychosocial and cardiometabolic health amongst Latinx communities across the life course.
