_1KK0972I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto. I completed my Master’s in Sociology at the University of Toronto in 2015. I am originally from Vancouver, B.C., and as an undergraduate, I studied sociology at the University of British Columbia.

My research is in the area of race, stress, and health/mental health. My recent work analyzes the representation of race and skin tone in medical textbooks. I am also working on several projects related to race and health, skin tone and health/mental health, race and medical compliance, and adolescent mental health.

I currently hold a Joseph-Armand Bombardier doctoral scholarship for my comparative research on race/ethnicity, discrimination, and mental/physical health.
