Breanna D. Brock, MA, is a Ph.D. student in sociology at Stony Brook University. Her work broadly focuses on the construction of race and ethnicity, Black racial identity, health, and migration. More specifically, she explores racial identity in African Americans and 1st and 2nd generation Black immigrants from Africa, the Caribbean, and parts of Europe. In addition, she examines how nativity and experiences of racial discrimination impact self-identification and mental health outcomes. This summer, Breanna is assisting the interns at the NJ State Policy Lab in completing literature reviews on their topic of interest and leading workshops on the fundamentals of conducting research.
