Research Interests

My formal and informal education has come from Bradley University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Kentucky, Duke University, and the countless community organizers and activists, Black feminists, young people, and community members I have crossed paths with during my fight for the advancement of marginalized folx.

As a faculty member in the psychology department at the University of Florida, I developed and lead the Wellness, Equity, Love, Liberation, and Sexuality Healing and Research Collective. My research, teaching, and service connect to my larger goal of enhancing the psychopolitical wellness of folx who experience oppression simply as a result of their social identities. I focus on social justice, prevention, holistic wellness, and strengths in my work. In my research, I love using contextually rich, qualitative, and intersectional approaches to exploring the experiences and promoting the wellness of Black folx and of queer, transgender, and/or gender-expansive People of Color.

I co-founded Academics for Black Survival and Wellness (#Academics4BlackLives), am a proud member of the Psychology of Radical Healing Collective, and an American Psychological Association (APA) Minority Fellow.
