Current and/or Anticipated Research

My thesis research explored the relationship between religion and depression in the United States older adult population. Specifically, I analyzed how the two types of religiosity (organizational and nonorganizational) influenced depression and also how gender and race interacted with this relationship.

In the future, I would like to analyze the mechanisms of religiosity that influence levels of depression. I am also interested in researching how social networks impact the lives of individuals living in poverty.
