Personal Statement

Personal Statement

My research and teaching interest center on the pathways that link structural disadvantages to the well-being of marginalized populations. Research wise, I enjoy using advanced multilevel and structural equation modeling techniques in two lines of research. My first line of work examines how school factors impact academic achievement among Canadian youth. In addition, I am interested in how residential segregation, income inequality, neighborhood disorder, and discrimination stress impact the life chances (e.g., health, death from homicide) of African Americans and Latinos in the U.S. The courses that I teach here at Adelphi emphasize these topics and I enjoy working with students who are interested in these issues in the form of independent studies and/or in the co-authoring of papers.
