I am interested in issues impacting minority groups, broadly defined. I am especially interested in working with LGBT populations, as well as African American and Latino/Latina populations. I am also interested in intersectionality between these various populations. More specifically, I aim to integrate this research into dyadic contexts, particularly romantic relationships. An overarching question is how might relationships in these various groups be different from heteronormative relationships. Additionally, in what ways do stressors impacting these various minority groups influence their romantic relationships, and other domains of their lives (e.g. family functioning, work and school)?
