Philosophy Statement:

My research focuses on the experiences of marginalized populations, particularly trans and sexual minority populations. I am interested in how identity (e.g., identity development, identity processes, feelings about one’s identity, etc.) impacts health and well being. Numerous studies have documented high rates of discrimination experiences and mental health problems in sexual minority and trans populations, while a much smaller number of studies have focused on positive outcomes and well being. Therefore, I am also interested in exploring factors that may promote health and well being, even in the face of negative life experiences. It is my ultimate hope that my research will contribute to prevention and intervention programs aimed at helping individuals who hold stigmatized identities in this society connect with that which is positive, unique, and beautiful about their identities.
