Chandra Reyna is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park, a former McNair Scholar, and a recipient of a 2019 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Her scholarship broadly tries to understand how macro-level social processes affect day to day micro interactions at the intersection of race, gender, and family. Her previous research examines institutional responses to social and racial justice work taking place on predominantly white college campuses. Her current projects explore racial identity and racialization in Latinx and multiracial families.
