Curriculum Vitae: Jae Puckett

I am a member of the MSU Sexual and Gender Minority Health Consortium and the Center for Gender in Global Context.


My research documents experiences of stigma and marginalization encountered by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals and the negative health outcomes of prejudice using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods approaches. Although my work has broadly focused on the LGBTQ community, my primary focus is on the lived experiences of transgender and gender diverse individuals. My research seeks to provide a nuanced understanding of the mechanisms and processes that underlie the production of health disparities that exist for these communities, as well as strategies for coping and being resilient in the face of the adverse life events that transgender and gender diverse people frequently encounter.
