Inequities in health and healthcare are dynamic and shaped by changes in markets, social conditions, and policies. Alexander’s work is focused on examining the heterogeneous impacts of such changes on health disparities and identifying potential solutions. To achieve this, he draws on theoretical perspectives from the social sciences and leverages methods from health policy, economics, and data science. His current research focuses on disparities in quality of care and accrual of medical debt. Altogether, he hopes to contribute toward building a Culture of Health through enhancing understanding of how and why inequities manifest in our healthcare system and identifying multilevel policies and interventions to mitigate and prevent these issues in the future.
