Personal profile

Research areas

My research focuses on the relationship between multiple group memberships and psychological and physical health and well-being. Specifically, I look at the underlying mechanisms and processes (e.g. buffer effect, stress, allostatic load) that may underpin this relationship. I also look at the mental and physical health effects of marginalized/devalued social identity.
