Thomas E. Fuller-Rowell received his PhD in developmental psychology from the Department of Human Development at Cornell University in 2010, and his B.A. in biochemistry and psychology from the University of Colorado in 2003. His research focuses on two main areas: (1) understanding identity development among stigmatized groups, and (2) examining the influence of social stresses relating to stigma and discrimination on health and health disparities. As a Health & Society Scholar, he aims to expand his knowledge of physiological systems relating to stress, gain exposure to interdisciplinary perspectives on population health, and contribute to addressing current limitations in the literature on discrimination and health.
