I am a postdoctoral research scholar in the Department of Psychology working with Dr. Kelly Lynn Mulvey and with Dr. Adam Hartstone-Rose in the Department of Biology. Broadly, I study how contextual and socializing agents influence the development of ethnic-racial and gender identity in ethnic-racial minority youth and the influence of identity and identity development on youth’s academic and psychological outcomes. I am also interested in the development of interventions to ensure congruency between marginalized social identities and academic motivation and mental health. My research has appeared in Child Development, Developmental Psychology, and Journal of Educational Psychology. From 2017 to 2019, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychology and School of Education at the University of Michigan.
