About Us

Sociologists Talking About Population Health (STAPH) is the Rice Department of Sociology population health lab group, comprised of Drs. Brown, Denney, Gorman, and Kimbro, and their postdoctoral fellows, Ph.D. students, and undergraduate research assistants.  Our group focuses primarily on health disparities, broadly defined; both the shape of differences between groups as well as explanatory mechanisms for those differences.  Want to learn more?  staph@rice.edustaph
