CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES: (brief description): My current research project is focused on the association between gendered racism and anxiety amongst African-American women and whether the effects of this relationship are negatively buffered by identity shifting as a strategy for coping. My research interests are in the Strong Black Woman (SBW) stereotype, mental health disparities among African-American women, and mental health of impoverished populations.

OTHER RESEARCH EXPERIENCES: During the summer of 2017, I conducted research on the association between hippocampal volume and parenting behavior of Mexican-origin adolescents under the advisement of Dr. Amanda Guyer at the University of California, Davis. I will be presenting this research at the 2017 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students in Phoenix, Arizona
