Ankur Srivastava

Ankur Srivastava

Assistant Professor Ankur Srivastava is working to reduce health disparities among various LGBTQ+ populations, building on almost 10 years of community-based engagement in India and the United States. He is creating a new structure of sexual identity management to better understand the way adolescents manage personal and social necessities that are connected with their sexual identity, especially when they are within hostile climates. His research looks to help social scientists with understanding the connection of someone’s identity to healthy development and a healthy environment. Srivastava is also working in Mumbai, India to study ways of supporting those that are transitioning their gender, both prior to, in the middle of, and following their transition.
