Welcome to the Earnshaw Lab

I am a social psychologist who aims to understand and intervene in the relationship between stigma and health inequities. Much of my research is with people at risk of or living with chronic illnesses including HIV, but I work with members of other socially marginalized and devalued groups. This website is a space for people who are interested in research: People who do research, like to learn about research, or want to participate in research.

The Research page highlights several of my current research projects, theories of stigma and health inequities, stigma scales, and answers questions about my research. The People page introduces lab members. The Podcast page links to our Sex, Drugs & Science podcast. The News page includes a blog about my latest research findings, and announcements about upcoming presentations, media coverage, and other things. Thanks for visiting!
