FOCUS
Mahader is dedicated to advancing health and justice in underserved and historically marginalized communities globally. Her research focuses on mental health disparities, particularly community-based interventions that address the structural forces driving these disparities. Utilizing both quantitative and qualitative methods in epidemiology, Mahader investigates how structural determinants, including racism, poverty, housing, community violence, migration, and trauma influence mental health both across the life course and intergenerationally. She envisions research that translates beyond academia to transform the world around us.
