Michael Park

NIMH T32 Postdoctoral Fellow

Michael Park’s research focuses on investigating how social positionality within the intersection of race/ethnicity, and immigration explains health disparities among racial/ethnic minorities in the United States. Specifically, his current research focuses on understanding familial (e.g., parental racial/ethnic socialization) and social contexts (e.g., racism and racial stereotypes) that support or hinder the developmental potentials of minority immigrant youth. Michael Park applies an interdisciplinary lens to his research, holding masters’ degrees in social work and biostatistics, and having published and worked with scholars across a wide range of fields including social work, sociology, counseling psychology, and psychiatry.
