Gabriele Ciciurkaite joined the department in 2016 after completing her PhD in Sociology at the University of Kentucky. Her research largely draws upon her expertise in survey research and advanced quantitative data analysis, and covers two areas: (1) the reciprocal association between social factors and nutrition-related health issues; and (2) infectious and chronic disease prevention and management among vulnerable populations. Conceptually, her work is largely informed by theories within medical sociology and social psychology that articulate the unique social and personal challenges, which individuals in disadvantaged positions tend to face. Her work has been published in top sociology and interdisciplinary journals in her specialty areas, including Social Science & Medicine, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Public Health Reports, Sociology of Health & Illness, Substance Use and Misuse, and the Journal of Rural Health.
