Fernando De Maio, PhD, is Director of Research and Data Use at the Center for Health Equity, American Medical Association. He is also a Professor of Sociology at DePaul University, where he teaches social epidemiology and data analysis. His research interests revolve around the concept of structural violence and the social determinants of health. His work has been guided by the notion of "radical statistics" -- the idea that statistical analysis can be used to not just describe the world, but to change it. He is a co-editor of Community Health Equity: A Chicago Reader, published by the University of Chicago Press in 2019. His latest book, Unequal Cities, is a collaboration with Maureen Benjamins and researchers at Chicago's Sinai Urban Health Institute, where he was a visiting research fellow in 2019.
