My research focuses primarily on investigating psychosocial determinants of African American men's mental and physical health across the life-course. More specifically, my research investigates the contribution of gender (e.g., social constructions of masculinity), intergenerational transmission, socioeconomic status, socioenvironmental processes (e.g., racial discrimination), health-related attitudes (e.g., medical mistrust) and behavior to African American men's mental and physical health status.
