His primary research seeks to understand the specific conditions under which social sources of stress, such as racial discrimination, helps explain the link between race and health. Woo is currently participating in a transdisciplinary research project on air pollution and health, which focuses on how air pollution exposure interacts with individual, family, and environmental-level stressors to create racial health disparities. He is also collaborating with a team of scholars to investigate how family ethnic-racial socialization and racial discrimination influence ethnic identity development among Asian American adolescents. Woo has published on the topics of racial discrimination, stress and stress reactions, and neighborhood characteristics that influence minority health and well-being.
