My name is Nick Graetz and I’m from Winona, MN. I completed my BS at the University of Wisconsin in social psychology and political science. I finished my MPH at the University of Washington this past summer while working full-time at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, where I’m now a researcher on the geospatial analysis team. I’m very interested in using physical space as a proxy for institutionalized inequity and the intersection of spatial epidemiology with social science. I consider social justice and health equity to be my highest priorities in public health research. I’m broadly interested in community organizing, resegregation, social determinants of health, data visualization, and Bayesian hierarchical modeling.
