This project explores the use of immersive virtual reality (IVR) to examine effects on racial competence, emotional and behavioral responses to racism. This work includes applications of 1000 Cut Journey our first VR piece developed in collaboration with the Virtual Human Interaction Lab at Stanford University, a VR experience and data visualization project that are both currently under development.

Conceptual work and multi-methodological empirical approaches to examining the effects of cultural racism (e.g. media-based racism) on acute and chronic health-related outcomes. Examples of research in this area include lab-based experiments examining the effects of media exposure on physiological, affective, and behavioral stress responses as well as the use of computational social science leveraging Natural Language Processing (NLP), sentiment analysis, and "big data" to examine chronic exposure to media-based racism (e.g. police violence), public discourse related to media-based racism and health.
