Biography

Rosalyn Negron is a socio-cultural/urban anthropologist in the Department of Anthropology. She is an Affiliate Faculty at the Gaston Institute for Latino Community Development and Public Policy, and the Critical Ethnic and Community Studies graduate program. She is also a member of the Core Team for UMass Boston's Sustainable Solutions Lab, a research institute dedicated to understanding the disproportionate impacts of climate change on vulnerable populations and working with them to develop sustainable and equitable solutions. Her work is bound together by an overarching interest in the role of social environments on the decisions that people make for their social, economic, and physical well-being: migration and health decisions, identity negotiations, linguistic and educational choices. With a range of applications, Rosalyn's work bridges multiple substantive and disciplinary areas, including social network analysis, sociolinguistics, health disparities, and disparities in STEM participation. She has conducted research in Jamaica, Florida, New York City, and Boston. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, the Ford Foundation, and the Max Planck Institute for Religious and Ethnic Diversity. Rosalyn teaches several research design and methods courses at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels, with specialties in ethnographic methods, problem-centered transdisciplinary, and mixed methods research. She received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of Florida in 2007.
