Her dissertation on “The Construction of Resilience by African American Undergraduate Females within the Context of Higher Education” examines the nature of socialization and gender norms in higher education contexts and focuses on the salient configurations of resilience and well-being of a specific ethnic group. She uses tenets of both Black feminism and race and gender intersectionality not only to understand how gender and racial categorizations might affect resilience but also to address any decrease in well-being that can potentially have a long-term lingering effect on African-American females’ identity.
She has studied and/or lived in France, Madagascar, Martinique, and French Guiana.
