About Simone Rambotti

I am a PhD candidate in the School of Sociology at the University of Arizona. I am currently examining the effect of social inequalities on health-related outcomes utilizing a broad variety of methodological approaches, such as longitudinal analysis, multilevel modeling, and a case-oriented approach to regression analysis. I am also analyzing end-of-life crises by looking at their media representations, and by conducting online experiments.

Areas of Study

Social Determinants of Health; Methods and Statistics; Inequality; Sociology of Health and Illness; Social Epidemiology; End-of-life; Networks; Culture; Topic Modeling; Sport.
