Tahlia Bragg, President of Black Student Association

Tahlia Bragg, Ph.D.

On Wednesday, March 15, 2023, Fielding alum Dr. Tahlia Bragg received an appointment to the new Affiliate cohort of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research.

“I am ecstatic and deeply honored to have been accepted to the Center for Antiracist Research. As a postdoctoral fellow committed to decolonizing research and practice, I am eager to elevate my commitment at the esteemed center founded by Dr. Ibrahim X. Kendi,” shared Dr. Bragg. “My current research focuses on deconstructing race as a variable. Aside from becoming a subject-matter expert in researching racial disparities in Alzheimer’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease-related dementias with an emphasis on Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), my ultimate goal is to relay my work back to help my community find equity and greater accessibility in mental health and medical settings.”

The BU Center for Antiracist Research’s Affiliates Program is a network of faculty and graduate students from BU schools and colleges — and other universities and colleges in New England — engaged in antiracist research. Affiliates can participate directly in the Center’s research, policy, narrative, and advocacy work, including its Research & Policy Teams, convenings, and media collaborations. Affiliates also have access to the Public Scholarship Program, which leverages connections and experience to assist affiliated faculty in making their scholarship accessible to the public, including converting research into media and trade press pitches, white papers, and research briefs. In addition, affiliates will have access to regular networking opportunities.

This important community convenes researchers and practitioners from various disciplines to figure out novel and practical ways to understand, explain, and solve seemingly intractable problems of racial inequity and injustice.

Dr. Tahlia Bragg is a graduate of the Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology program. She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in Clinical Neuropsychology at the Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Center at Boston University Chobanian & Avedesian School of Medicine. And as a Fielding student, she served as the university’s inaugural president of the Black Student Association. Congratulations, Dr. Bragg, on this exemplary and much-deserved appointment. We look forward to the work you and your cohort produce at the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research.
