Richard M. Carpiano

I am Professor of Public Policy and Sociology at the University of California, Riverside.

Upon completing my Ph.D. in Sociomedical Sciences (a combined degree program in Public Health and Sociology) from Columbia University in 2004, I was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 2004-2006.

As a medical sociologist and public and population health scientist, I study how social factors, such as education, income, race-ethnicity, and social connections impact the physical and mental health of adults, children, and the communities in which they live.
