Bio

My research focus is on the impact of structural inequities on health and education outcomes among people of color. As co-director of the Collective Health and Education Equity Research Lab, I conduct research on structural inequities in health and education. Recent projects include examining masculinity, racism and health outcomes among Black males, and examining gendered racism, sexism and advancement of women of color in the academy. My work has been funded by the Minority Male Health Initiative, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Labor. I have published in peer reviewed journals and consistently pursue research grants.
