Alex Kulick is a graduate student in sociology at UCSB. He received a BA in Women’s Studies from the University of Michigan, where he also worked on multiple research projects in social work, education, and public health. These studies focused on contextual influences on health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQ) youth communities. Building from these projects, as well as his background as a queer youth organizer, his current projects focus on social movements, intersectionality, and transformative social change, technology, the Internet, and social media. He is also a trainee for the NSF-funded Network Science IGERT at UCSB.
