Stacey L. Houston II

Stacey L. Houston II, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in Sociology at George Mason University. He received his B.A. Sociology from Davidson College in 2013 and his M.A. and Ph.D. in Sociology from Vanderbilt University in 2015 and 2018 respectively. His major research interests are health disparities, criminal justice, race/ethnicity, and education. His specific research projects highlight the intersections of these broad fields.

In his dissertation study, Stacey explored the link between education, interactions with the criminal justice system, and well-being. He investigated how disciplinary practices in early education contribute to involvement with the criminal justice system, which, in turn, leads to health disparities across racial groups. While at Vanderbilt, Stacey worked on the EDEFI project for four years.
