My primary research area of interest is racism and health. My work focuses on understanding how racism acts as a stressor impacting health outcomes. For my master’s thesis, I investigated the relationship between racial discrimination and miscarriage in a sample of black women from the San Francisco Bay Area, finding as women’s self-reported experiences of racial discrimination increased, so did their likelihood of having one or more miscarriage in their life.

I am currently working on my dissertation proposal. I intend for my proposal to build on my master’s thesis research by continuing to assess the relationship between racism, stress, and health outcomes among non-white women.
