PhD University of Florida.
Rosalyn specializes in cultural and linguistic anthropology with an emphasis on Latino Studies and research methods. Her research focuses on the study of ethnicity in everyday life and interaction. Advancing her interest in social network analysis, her research also explores the influence of network composition and structure on the use of multiple ethnic identifications. Rosalyn has conducted research on social networks, brain drain migration, and minority health in New York City, Boston, Jamaica and rural north Florida. She is currently developing a project about the measurement of ethnic and racial categories in health disparities research. Her work explores the meaning and significance of ethnic categories and the ways in which they are used in daily life in order to better inform their use in health research and practice. Rosalyn has also applied social network analysis to study leadership structures at Catholic parishes to help develop cancer prevention interventions for Latinos.
