Catherine Cubbin is a Faculty Research Associate at the Population Research Center at UT, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at UCSF. She is one of the core investigators in the Center on Social Disparities in Health at UCSF. Dr. Cubbin received her PhD in Health and Social Policy from the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health in 1998. She was trained as a CDC fellow at the National Center for Health Statistics and completed an NIH postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University. Dr. Cubbin's research focuses on using epidemiological methods to better understand socioeconomic and racial/ethnic inequalities in health for the purpose of informing policy. A specific area of her research is using contextual analysis to investigate how neighborhood environments may explain social inequalities in health. Using national and statewide representative data sets, she has studied social inequalities in injuries, cardiovascular disease, mortality, and most recently, maternal, infant, and adolescent health.
