Dr. Devin English, a researcher and and educator with the Rutgers School of Public Health shares his recent research to investigate intersectional discrimination, coping, and bio-psychosocial outcomes among adolescent Black youth. The research examines frequencies and psychological effects of daily racial discrimination experienced individual, vicariously, online, offline, and through teasing.
Dr. English earned his BA in Psychology from Macalester College and his PhD in Clinical/Community Psychology from the George Washington University. His predoctoral research was partially funded by a three-year NIDA F31 grant examining daily racial discrimination measurement and modelling its longitudinal effects on psychosocial outcomes among Black American adolescents and adults. He subsequently completed his postdoctoral research at Hunter College of the City University of New York where his research focused on examining the health effects of intersectional racial and sexual identity discrimination among Black queer men.
