Julia Mcquoid, PhD

Postdoc Scholar
Cardiovascular Research Inst

I am a health geographer interested in qualitative and mixed methods approaches to understanding relationships between people’s everyday environments and behaviors related to health and wellbeing. During my fellowship at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at UCSF, I am researching place-embedded social practices of smoking within marginalized groups, such as young LGBTQI adults, in order to better understand the persistence of smoking within these groups and inform the design and effectiveness of tobacco control efforts. During my PhD I explored experiences of time and space for individuals negotiating everyday life with chronic kidney disease, and collaborated with a research group focused on time and health at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health in Australia.
