My primary research interest focuses on how the intersections of social inequality and discrimination ‘get under the skin’ to influence minority group members’ health over the life course and across generations. Physiologic stress response is a key pathway through which health disparities emerge in the U.S. population, thus my research integrates biological markers of stress, immune function, and chronic disease with innovative approaches to sociological data collections and analyses. To understand how these processes unfold to shape health risk and why these processes matter, our lab is currently implementing a variety of studies including several that examine how the stress of social exclusion and racial discrimination influence the health and well-being of parents and their children in the local community.
