Black Religious and Social Life Project

This project uses in-depth interviews with black Christians who live in a metropolitan southern city to explore how individuals and their faith communities engage with various social issues. Data will be collected during the summer of 2019 with the publication of the results forthcoming. 


National Couples’ Health and Time Study

I am on the advisory council for the National Couples’ Health and Time Study (NCHAT). NCHAT is the first population-representative study of same and different-gender couples in the United States. Data will be collected from over 2500 individuals and their partners, and the study will also have an oversample of individuals who are race and ethnic minorities. With support from NICH, the NCHAT team, working with Gallup, will be collecting survey, time diary, and biological (dried blood spot) data. The data will eventually be publicly available.
