Margaret Rosario, PhD, is a Professor of Psychology at The City University of New York (CUNY)—The City College and Graduate Center; a faculty member in the doctoral programs of Clinical Psychology, Health Psychology and Clinical Science, and Basic and Applied Social Psychology. Her areas of research focus on understanding changes in identity and stress, and most particularly their health and adaptational implications for individuals confronting chronic challenges. Her recent research has primarily centered on lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth because the unfolding of same-sex sexuality during adolescence and emerging adulthood is an experience for which most youth are unprepared, involves coping with experiences associated with society’s stigmatization of homosexuality, and has serious implications for health and adaptation. The relations between stress and sexual identity development on the one hand to both health and adaptation on the other hand are of critical interest, as are the mediators and moderators of those relations. In addition, Professor Rosario is interested in the origins or determinants of identity and the intersection of multiple identities. She is the recipient of research grants, as principal- or co-investigator, from the National Institutes of Health and CUNY. She is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Sex Research and on the editorial boards of Archives of Sexual Behavior and the American Journal of Community Psychology. She has been at CUNY since September 1997. Professor Rosario did her postdoctoral training at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, her doctorate at New York University, and her bachelor’s at Princeton University.
