Curriculum Vitae

Epidemiology & Biostatistics

Allan identifies as a social epidemiologist, and his research is at both the intersection of family systems and child health and global health in the context of social conflict and climatological mass trauma. Allan’s research employs quantitative techniques for ecological momentary assessment data to examine how events that repeatedly affect the family system affect the health of the parent-child dyad and home food environment. His population-based research identifies disasters that satisfy natural experiment conditions in existing demographic and health data to understand cross-national patterns in how climate-related disasters impact the health and behaviors of human populations.
