Danielle Rhubart earned her dual Ph.D. in Rural Sociology and Demography from the Pennsylvania State University in 2016. Her research focuses on spatial disparities in the structural and policy determinants of health, as well as the intersection of health and the environment. She uses quantitative analyses of secondary data and mixed methods to examine inequalities in place-level health and well-being. Danielle's research has been published in Population Research and Policy Review and SSM-Population Health. She also has collaborative and interdisciplinary research published in Maternal and Child Health, Society and Environment, and Climatic Change. Danielle has written public research briefs and reports for the Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion, the Carsey School of Public Policy (University of New Hampshire), and the Center for Rural Pennsylvania.
