Claudia Rangel

Former MA Candidate and Research Associate

I am broadly interested in spatial inequalities in access to and use of opportunity structures for children, particularly children in immigrant families. My current research under Prof. Gilliland's STEAM project focuses on the role of the built environment on children's health outcomes and behaviours, specifically the food environment in and around schools.
