Quynh Nguyen, PhD and MSPH, is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. Dr. Nguyen is a social epidemiologist focusing on contextual and economic factors as they relate to health. She has extensive experience using numerous national and international population-based health surveys to examine social and economic predictors of health and to quantify national and international patterns in health disparities.

Her current research program focuses on creating and validating neighborhood indicators constructed from nontraditional Big Data sources, such as social media data and Google Street View images.
