About: Stephen Russell completed his Ph.D. in Sociology at Duke University in 1994 with a concentration in life course studies and demography. Before coming to the University of Arizona in the summer of 2004 he was on faculty at the University of California, Davis (1999-2004) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (1997-1999). Stephen is a William T. Grant Foundation Scholar (2001-2006), and a Visiting Distinguished Professor of Human Sexuality Studies at San Francisco State University. He is an expert on adolescent health, with specific focus on the role of ethnic, sexual, and gender identities in adolescent health and well-being. He is involved in a multi-year study of ethnic group differences in parenting practices and the implications for adolescent health. His Scholar Award from the William T.
