Hi, my name is Nathaniel Tran (they/he)

I am a researcher studying the effects of public policies on marginalized populations, including LGBTQ+ people and communities of color. 

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Health Policy, LGBTQ+ Policy Lab, and Center for Research on Inequality and Health at Vanderbilt University. I expect to earn my degree in May 2024. 

I am on the job market for positions that begin in Fall 2024. View one of my dissertation projects — Aging in Isolation: Sexual Orientation Differences in Navigating Cognitive Decline. 

I earned my bachelor's degree from Tufts University in 2017 and was a Fulbright Fellow to Argentina in 2018.
