I am a third-year MSPH-to-PhD student in the Department of Health Behavior at the Gillings School of Global Public Health. I am interested in the health of LGBTQ+ individuals across the lifespan, especially as it relates to mental health and housing outcomes. 

Prior to my time as a Biosocial Trainee, I worked as a research assistant at the Communicating for Health Impact (CHI) Lab, where I managed a trial that validated a scale that measured the effectiveness of vaping prevention messages. I also worked at the Action Research on Community Health Equity and Stigma (ARCHES) lab, where I supported participatory research related to LGBTQ+ adolescent health.

Research Interests

LGBTQ+ health across the life course; Mental health; Housing disparities; Aging inequities; Community-based participatory research;
