About Rosalie A. Torres Stone

Dr. Rosalie A. Torres Stone, Ph.D., is currently Assistant Professor of Psychiatry in the Systems and Psychosocial Advances Research Center. Dr. Torres Stone’s research focuses on the effect of social inequality with a special emphasis on underserved minority populations and health/mental health.  An early stream of her research examined how race/ethnicity and gender explain labor market differences in wages. Her prior work also includes several studies aimed at understanding both social risk and protective factors for psychosocial and behavioral health outcomes in Latino youth and young adults. She has extensive specific training and expertise in qualitative and quantitative research methods as well in statistical data analysis.  Her current research accentuates the importance of understanding the unique life stressors that place undocumented young adults at greater risk of psychosocial stressors. Together, this body of work supports the need to tailor mental health and vocational rehabilitation services to effectively engage and retain underserved minority populations in services.  Dr. Torres Stone has been a co-investigator on numerous grant-funded projects from Universities, the states of Massachusetts and Nebraska, as well as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and The National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).
