Corbin J. Standley

Institution: Michigan State University (Ecological-Community Psychology), USA.

Supervisory team: Dr. NiCole T. Buchanan.

Position: PhD Candidate.

Current research: My research interests lie at the intersection of community psychology, public health, and policy. I am interested in equitable, community-based, and social justice-oriented approaches to suicide research. My current research explores the impacts of intersectionality on suicide risk and the role of social support as a protective factor for youth suicide.

Research interests:

  • Systems- and community-level approaches to prevention
  • Equity and social justice in suicidology
  • Translating research into policy
  • Intersectionality and its impact on suicide risk and prevention.
  • Displaying and communicating research to diverse stakeholders.

Can help with: I’m always open to conversations about social justice and equity within suicidology. I’m also very willing to offer advice or talk about data visualization, data dashboards, and communicating research to diverse audiences (including community members, media, policymakers, etc.). I can also help with questions related to systems and community approaches to research, public health, or policy implications.

What’s essential to your well-being? Outside of work, music is an essential part of my self-care. I am part of the Steiner Chorale and enjoy singing and playing the piano. I also enjoy cooking and traveling whenever I can. Of course coffee and some Netflix are always essential as well.
