Eva Wilson is a second-year Master’s student in the Mental Health Counseling program at Boston College. She earned her BA in Psychology from Yale University.
Eva joined the ISPRC in the fall of 2012 as a graduate research assistant and was previously an advocate at the Jeremiah E. Burke high school. She is currently working on projects investigating the identity development of multiracial adults and is involved in developing a curriculum for an institute on racial identity for undergraduate students in collaboration with Boston College Office of AHANA and Office of Student Formation. She is also a member of the publicity team for Diversity Challenge. Her research interests include racial identity development, particularly in multiracial individuals, and how the intersection of race and gender impact identity development. In addition, she is interested in the college experiences of students of color and in developing programming to address their needs.
Eva’s past research has explored mental health outcomes in the children of mothers with histories of mental illness an substance abuse and improving healthcare delivery amongst multi-stressed, inner-city populations. Her work experience has predominantly focused on addressing the needs of underserved, urban populations. Currently, she is a clinical intern at a Boston-area college counseling center, and helps to coordinate a mentoring and discussion group that connects female students of color with female administrators of color on Boston College's campus.
In her spare time, Eva enjoys dancing, running, trying new cuisines, watching movies, reading, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
