Allen Mallory is a second year Ph.D. student in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences in the SOGI: Health and Rights Lab. He is also a NICHD predoctoral trainee in the UT Population Research Center. He received his masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Kansas State University. Currently, his research focuses on identifying modifiable factors that can be targeted for intervention to improve the health of sexual minorities. In addition, he focuses on examining how intersections of discrimination and identities (i.e. race, sexual orientation, and gender) influence health disparities among sexual and gender minorities. He also does some work on sex education and couples sexual communication. Ultimately, Allen’s goal is to produce high quality and rigorous research in these areas that can be translated to inform policy, improve the well-being of sexual and gender minority people, and be useful for a lay audience.
