Marisol's current research focuses on understanding the ethical concerns regarding various COVID-19 testing and vaccinations strategies within prisons and jails and historical contexts to pandemic within carceral settings. In the past, Marisol has worked with incarcerated populations with substance use disorders and HIV/AIDS, and conducted qualitative research on sexual transmitted diseases, and other marginalized populations (those with autism). Marisol is motivated to this work because she loves to help change the lives of people who never imagined they could get another chance and to learn new developments in research an ways she can contribute to the solution of dismantling systems meant to destroy communities. Marisol has a BA and MA in Psychology from Southern Connecticut State University.
