Headshot of IRDL Speaker Series presenter, D'Lane Compton

D’Lane R. Compton is a Full Professor of Sociology at the University of New Orleans. Their two major research interests are social psychology and the demography of sexual orientation. While these two fields may seem unrelated, their research utilizes both perspectives to examine sexual, gender, and family inequalities. Specifically, their research adds to our knowledge about how categorization or labeling processes yield different outcomes in treatment and resources.
