Research Investigator

Daniel Lee is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Human Growth and Development. He received his doctorate in clinical psychology with a minor in quantitative psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research examines the relation between race, poverty, and health outcomes (psychological and physiological) in African American youth and young adults using a biopsychosocial frame of reference. He is also interested in understanding the role of individual (e.g., racial identity), interpersonal (e.g., mentorship), and community level (e.g., religious institutions) protective factors in the discrimination-health link. Specifically, he is particularly interested in elucidating the processes by which religious involvement and racial identity promote resilience in the context of discrimination.
