Ricky Granderson, M.P.H.


Ricky Granderson previously earned his M.P.H. at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor and is currently a 1st-year Basic and Applied Social Psychology Ph.D. student in the Department of Psychology at The CUNY Graduate Center.


His current research explores the way in which contemporary men (particularly heterosexual cisgender white men) can look to the innovative history of generative kinship and friendship in queer communities as a blueprint for how to pro-socially adapt to rapid changes in status, power, acceptable limits of behavior, and understandings of men/masculinity that they are currently failing to adapt to (as evidenced by widespread alienation, suicide, alcoholism, radicalization, etc.). He has experience with both qualitative (interviews, focus groups, critical discursive psychological analysis) and quantitative research methods (basic statistics, hierarchical linear regression, structural equation modeling, etc.).
