Research Interests

Broadly, my research focuses on protective factors and risk factors for African American students navigating educational contexts. I explore ethnic-racial socialization as a protective factor for African American families and the racialized experiences of African American youth in educational settings. I am interested in conducting research that impacts the efficiency and effectiveness of programs and policy needed to enhance the wellbeing of African American youth and families.
