Lorena M. Estrada-Martinez joined the Brown School in July 2011 as an assistant professor. Before coming to the Brown School, Dr. Estrada-Martinez was the Paul B. Cornely Post-doctoral Research Scholar at University of Michigan’s Center for Research on Ethnicity Culture and Health.  During her fellowship, she conducted research on the social determinants of health and Latino health disparities. Other research interests included the health and well-being of Latinos and Afro-Caribbean populations and how the variations in immigration processes across those populations impact mental health and behavioral outcomes.

During this time, she also was a research assistant with the University of Michigan’s Prevention Research Center. In this role she analyzed data from the Flint Adolescent Study, looking at violent and non-violent delinquency among African American youths transitioning into adulthood.

Over the course of her professional career, she has lectured on a variety of topics including youth violence and injury prevention, racial and ethnic health disparities, adolescent health and women’s health.

Dr. Estrada-Martinez earned her doctorate in health behavior and health education at the University of Michigan.  She also holds a Master of Public Health from the University of Michigan.
