Research Interests

I am the co-director of the Collective Health and Education Equity Research (CHEER) collective. The CHEER collective seeks to (1) build knowledge and collective action to enhance Black wellness and educational opportunities, (2) identify strategies to dismantle structural inequalities, and (3) understand ways to build upon collective strengths in the Black community. My work uses both qualitative and quantitative approaches to examine reducing the negative impacts of racism and sexism on sexual health, HIV/AIDS prevention, cardiovascular health, and education leadership. My work has been funded by NSF, NIH, and the Department of Labor.
