Dr. Anglin’s research program and scholarship is informed by the unique integration of a multicultural psychology perspective with a specialized research background in public health. Generally, her work has focused on reducing mental health racial disparities and studying the social epidemiology of psychosis. Dr. Anglin is the lead investigator of a study funded by Columbia University’s Center for Excellence and Cultural Competence, Office of Mental Health, to study social and cultural determinants of psychosis risk. She is also the principal investigator of an NIH-funded study that utilizes an innovative experimental design to determine whether experiencing racial exclusion causes physiological and self-reported stress among young racial and ethnic minority adults presenting with attenuated psychotic symptoms.
Research and Scholarship Group
Dr. Anglin’s research lab uses concepts in multicultural psychology (e.g., ethnic identity, racial microaggressions, neighborhood ethnic density) to understand social determinants of racial health disparities with a particular focus on racial disparities in psychosis and psychosis risk. Members of Dr. Anglin’s RSG are involved in any of several quantitative research projects designed to determine social and environmental risk factors for attenuated psychotic symptoms in racial and ethnic minority young people, and the clinical meaning of such symptoms. Student members of this RSG can also participate in experimental studies designed to determine the physiological and psychological stress response associated with racial exclusion. Students have ample opportunities to develop their own projects in Dr. Anglin’s lab and to contribute to manuscripts using Dr. Anglin’s data.
