Research Interests

I’m really excited to be a part of Dr. Annesa Flenje’s Sexual and Gender Minority Health Equity Lab at UCSF. I’m working on two ancillary studies for The (amazing) Pride Study. One explores the relationship between state policies and victimization and discrimination among sexual and gender minority individuals. The other is qualitative in nature and looks into resilience in those same groups. 

I’m also grateful to be a research assistant with Dr. Richard Sprott’s CARAS project where I’m working on the Kink Identity and Sexuality Study, a project that specifically investigates kink identity and identity development, through in-depth, qualitative research.

Current Research Projects



The PRIDE Study is the first large-scale, long-term national health study of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ), or another sexual or gender minority. 



CARAS is dedicated to the support and promotion of excellence in the study of alternative sexualities, and the dissemination of research results to members of alternative sexuality and research communities and to the general public.
