I’m a public health researcher focused on HIV, with a background in Social and Infectious Disease Epidemiology. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, but this blog is my personal space and should not be construed to represent HSPH in any way. Rather, this is an outlet for my surfing of PubMed, with occasional digressions into actual thoughts on topics. And recently quite a lot of material on Ebola.
My primary research focus is on how social and economic structure limits choices and pushes (I guess nudges is the sexy term these days) people towards poor health outcomes. Hence the blog title. Of course, in a former life I used to work in Economics.

And if you happen to find materials on this site useful, and would not mind dropping me a line, it would be lovely to know what people are doing with the information I throw up here. Such feedback might even improve future content, you never know.
