The new RISE^2 Research Team has a two-fold focus. We study Relationships, Intimacy, + Sexual Enrichment and Race, Intersectionality, + Social justice Engagement. This year we have a few projects in progress:

  • The Healing Racial Trauma Study
  • Sexual Pleasure Among Black Students
  • How to Love a Human


I am excited about my new social justice oriented research project. I center love as the core of social justice, from the perspective of people with marginalized identities. The main point of inquiry – what would the world be like if it loved you? You can find out more about it at:
