Research Interests

Kaleigh is interested in studying exposure to violence, poverty, and other life stressors present in urban communities in order to better understand their effects on the mental health conditions of ethnic/minority populations that reside there. With this, she is specifically interested in exploring generational transmissions of trauma in and among African-American families.
