Her research is about health and social inequities across the life course among racialized communities in the U.S., with a focus on the intersection between race, ethnicity, and citizenship status.

Alein earned her B.A. in sociology and MPH in Community Health Sciences from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. She pursued her doctoral education in health policy, with a focus on Population Health Science, at UC Berkeley. Her doctoral studies were supported by the Health Policy Research Scholars program, a program by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment at UC Berkeley, and the Graduate Division Berkeley Fellowship. Her work has been published in the Journal of Immigrant Health, Preventive Medicine, Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities, and the American Journal of Preventive Medicine Focus, among others.

Alein’s goal is to use research findings to inform policy and practice solutions that remediate and prevent the exacerbation of health inequities.
