Carlos D. Tavares

I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Lafayette College. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from Duke University in 2018, where I was National Institutes of Health-National Institute on Aging T32 Pre-Doctoral Trainee.

My research areas are race and ethnicity, health, social stratification and mobility, and religion. Most of my research focuses on racial health disparities. I am especially interested in how racism impacts various health outcomes and what socioeconomic and psychosocial resources might protect Black American well-being.

I teach multiple courses around my interest areas, including Race, Racism and Health, Health in Life Course Perspective, and the Social Determinants of Health. I also teach an introductory sociology course and Research Methods.

Please take a look at some of my research and my CV.
