My research centers on medical sociology and social psychology to investigate race, ethnicity, gender, social class, and sexualities, and the intersections among them.  In particular, I examine the social factors — namely prejudice and discrimination — that produce and maintain disparities in mental, physical, and sexual health.  In an additional area of scholarship, I investigate sexual orientation as a social structure — that is, how sexual orientation operates as a system of stratification that shapes and constrains identities, interactions, relationships, organizations, and society in general.  See my publications and on-going projects below.
