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

My research investigates racial disparities in mental and physical health outcomes. My recent work examines the racial patterning of mental disorder across cohorts of Black and White Americans. 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.
