She completed her Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University and her postdoctoral training as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fellow in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at the Stanford School of Medicine. Professor Fielding-Singh’s work uses mixed methods to examine issues related to gender, family, and health disparities in the contemporary US.
