Carlos Tavares is a doctoral candidate in Sociology at Duke University. His primary areas of interest are: race and ethnicity, health, aging and the life course, social stratification and mobility, and religion.
His research examines the negative impact of persistent discrimination on long-term minority health with a special emphasis on understanding how psychosocial resources, such as racial identity and social support, may be protective of minority health over time. His current project explores intergenerational social class transmission and how class of origin and class destination impact health outcomes for various racial-ethnic groups. Some of his past research explores youth religious participation and the consequences of attending multiracial religious congregations.
