Research interests

Gender and sexuality, intersectionality, health equity, discrimination

I am passionate about utilizing research as a tool to understand and address social problems, particularly those facing diverse LGBTQ+ populations, women, immigrants, and racial and ethnic minority populations. My research focuses primarily on two areas: understanding factors which influence health-seeking behaviors and understanding the impact of perceived and enacted discrimination on well-being. Specific areas of interest include sexual and reproductive health, inclusive health education, gender roles, sense of community, communication, and internalized stigma. As a community psychologist by training, I often utilize community-based and participatory methods in my work.

Teaching interests

I teach courses in both psychology and gender, sexuality, and women’s studies at Union. I’m interested in teaching tied to gender and sexuality (Psychology of Gender, LGBTQ+ Studies, Human Sexuality, Global Perspectives on Queerness), multicultural psychology, health psychology, community psychology, and social psychology.
