Our research broadly focuses on minority stress and resilience in transgender and gender diverse communities. We examine questions related to this area using a variety of methods and approaches, including qualitative work exploring unique minority stressors in transgender communities, as well as quantitative work exploring how minority stress and resilience relate to health outcomes. 

We have a variety of on-going research studies and collaborations described below. For more information about our community-engaged approach or our overall research philosophy, see here.
