Eileen Avery teaches courses on population health, criminology, and statistics. She is interested in the ways that economic, social, and built residential contexts are associated with health, wellbeing, and social control. Past and ongoing projects focus on the relationship between neighborhood context and health and mortality, fear, cohesion, and experiences with police. In collaboration with colleagues at the University of Missouri, she has designed, implemented, and analyzed data from the “Your Ideas Count” Conservation Opinion Survey and the Missouri Crime and Victimization Survey for the Missouri Department of Conservation and Missouri State Highway Patrol respectively.
