Adrian’s research interest focuses on the psychobiological mechanisms linking social influences on health outcomes. He is particularly interested in elucidating how social factors (e.g., socioeconomic position, interpersonal relationships, stigma, discrimination) result in differences in everyday social interactions and experiences translating into biological changes that impact mental and physical health.
