Dr. Danielle Xiaodan Morales
I obtained my Ph.D. in sociology from the Department of Sociology at Texas A&M University in 2015. I am currently working as a post-doctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health funded BUILDing SCHOLARS Center at UTEP. My research spans the areas of research in higher education, science and education, social demography, and environmental justice.
