My research interests center broadly on exploring the pathways that link perceived discrimination to a number of disparities between Whites and racial/ethnic minorities, including disparities in education, health, wealth, and well-being. Specifically, I examine how discrimination shapes affective, cognitive, behavioral, and physiological outcomes that, in turn, have implications for racial/ethnic disparities in many life domains. In this work, I focus on the identification of strategies that can help stigmatized individuals manage the challenges of navigating diverse spaces, including those with the potential to expose them to discrimination.
