Tiffany Joseph is a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Scholar at Harvard University from 2011-2013 and currently on leave. She completed her PhD in Sociology (2011) at the University of Michigan and received her BA in Sociology and Ethnic Studies (with honors) from Brown University (2004). Her research interests include: race, ethnicity, and migration in the Americas, the influence of immigration on the social construction of race in the US, immigration and health policy, and the experiences of minority faculty in academia. Dr. Joseph is currently working on two projects. The first is a book manuscript examining how US migration influenced the racial conceptions for Brazilian return migrants in Governador Valadares, Brazil. The second project explores how documentation status influences the healthcare access and utilization of Latino immigrants in the Boston metropolitan area. Her work has been published in Ethnic and Racial Studies, Gender and Education, and Race and Social Problems.
