Meet the Staff
Eva Wilson is a first-year doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program at Boston College. She earned her MA in Mental Health Counseling from Boston College and her BA in Psychology from Yale University.
Eva joined the ISPRC in the fall of 2012 as a research assistant and is thrilled to continue working with the team as a doctoral student. During her graduate study, she had the opportunity to serve as an advocate at the Jeremiah E. Burke high school and was the coordinator for a discussion group that connects female students of color with female administrators of color on Boston College's campus.
She is currently working on projects investigating the identity development of multiracial adults and previously helped to develop the curriculum for an institute on racial identity for undergraduate students in collaboration with Boston College Office of AHANA and Office of Student Formation. Her research interests include multiracial identity development 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 and 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. Her clinical experience includes individual counseling in a college counseling setting.
In her spare time, Eva enjoys dancing, running, boxing, cooking and trying new cuisines, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
