Osiris Rankin

Osiris is interested in cultural, social, and cognitive factors influencing the development and treatment of self-destructive behaviors, especially among members of traditionally understudied communities. He analyzes social networks to better understand the ways that social factors contribute to the development and spread of harmful behaviors. Recently, Osiris has also been working to understand the strengths and needs of an online peer support network and developing interventions to improve the community’s mental health.

Osiris is a 2017 recipient of the Ford Fellowship from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
