I research social stratification and health in the U.S. with an emphasis on stress and coping. I want to know how people who occupy different social strata learn to interpret their place in the world, and how they manage to cope with setbacks and failures within the confines of their socioeconomic positions. My work highlights religious involvement, racial self-perceptions, and family ties as important coping resources, especially among marginalized groups and individuals.

Research Interests
