I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto.
My research investigates racial disparities in mental and physical health. Specifically, I am interested in how societal conditions produce racial inequities in population health. My research has been published in journals such as the American Journal of Epidemiology, Social Science and Medicine, and Journal of Health and Social Behavior. To date, I have received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Michigan Center For Urban African American Aging Research, and the Canadian Sociological Association.
I currently hold a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship ($105,000) for my comparative research on race, discrimination, and mental/physical health.
