Luis Armando Parra

Luis Parra trained as a developmental scientist at the University of California, Davis and applies an intersectionality lens to further contextualize the lived experiences of adolescents and emerging adults who belong to multiple marginalized social groups.

Parra studies the effects of heterosexism, racism, and social support from family and peers, as sources of stress and resilience, on neurobiological and immunological regulation, affective forecasting, and behavioral health (e.g., anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation).

Before coming to the Brown School, Parra served as provost postdoctoral scholar for faculty diversity in the Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work at the University of Southern California.
