Biography: 

Dr. Ananya Tina Banerjee's multi-faceted research embeds a strong emphasis on community-based participatory research (CBPR), which is grounded in collaboration and partnership with racialized communities. Often, the research questions she pursues are community-defined problems in the context of the social determinants of health using mixed-methods and digital storytelling. This allows for the innovative adaptation of existing resources; explores local knowledge and perceptions; empowers marginalized communities by considering them agents who can investigate their own situations and push for health equity and social justice.
