Monique is a Philadelphia native and PhD Student at the University of Miami. She studies the individual and familial-level impacts of discrimination on youth of color. In particular, she is interested in how experiences with racial discrimination relate to both psychological and neurobiological outcomes for Black youth as well as how culturally relevant methods of racial coping, specifically, racial socialization, can mitigate deleterious outcomes from these incidents.
