Armin Dorri is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Human Development and Family Sciences Department at the University of Texas at Austin, working in the SOGI: Health and Rights Lab.

Armin’s research focuses on examining factors that influence health disparities of LGBTQ+ populations in their institutional settings (school, healthcare).  Armin is currently exploring how being “out” at school impacts LGBTQ+ health and mental health outcomes in later adulthood.  Ultimately, Armin’s goal is to produce rigorous research that informs policy aimed at eliminating disparities experienced by LGBTQ+ populations.
