Critical Social Epidemiology

Research Collaborative

The Critical Social Epidemiology Research Collaborative (CSE), in the Department of Epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, studies why and how socio-economic arrangements influence health. Our research concerns intersecting systems of racialized, political-economic domination, exploitation, and oppression. Currently, CSE’s work focuses on the collateral public health consequences of mass criminalization, mass incarceration, and the school-to-prison pipeline, and how the division and structure of labor influence mental health and substance use. CSE is led by Seth J. Prins, PhD MPH, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology and Sociomedical Sciences.
