Summary
Advisor: Dr. Charlene Muehlenhard
Research Interests: I am interested in topics pertaining to human sexuality, mental and sexual health, sexual minority and multiple-minority identity and experience, minority stress, mixed method analysis and quantitative psychology, and intersectional approaches to research practices. My recent projects have focused on understanding race-based rumination among racial and ethnic minorities distinguished from depressive rumination as well as the effects of recent social events, such as the Orlando massacre and the 2016 presidential election, on LGBTQ+ community mental health.
