As an applied social psychologist with experience in intervention design, implementation, and evaluation, I have worked for 15 years at the intersection of social science, public health, and epidemiology, primarily aiming to address the relationship between discrimination and health disparities among minority groups, both nationally and internationally. My research aims to investigate social determinants of disease in order to develop new prevention strategies for and in collaboration with marginalized individuals and communities that support them. I am primarily interested in behavioral, biomedical and structural interventions for racial/ethnic, sexual and gender minorities, in order to ameliorate negative social, developmental, and health outcomes. I teach in the Psychology Department at Hunter College, and have several ongoing intervention projects.
