Motunrayo Tosin-Oni

Motunrayo’s research interests lie at the intersection of health equity and community-driven policies. In her work, she explores the ways legislative and institutional policies intentionally or inadvertently create barriers to care for vulnerable populations, and the ways these barriers subsequently exacerbate health disparities. Her policy evaluation focus aims to highlight policies and practices that may have a negative, disparate impact on low-income, Black and Indigenous, and LGBTQIA populations. Finally, Motunrayo’s work prioritizes collaboration among community, research, and government sectors to design evidence-based community-driven solutions to these disparities, ensuring that policies are intentionally crafted with the communities they serve in mind.

Before joining the Harvard community, Motunrayo served at the California State Legislature as a legislative aide, where she helped draft legislative language and analyzed bills. She aims to foster public-private-community collaborations that bring evidence-based research to policymaking and community-focused perspectives to research work.
