Research

As a scientist-practitioner, I value the integration of research and clinical practice. I have been actively involved in research for nearly 10 years. I have worked on quantitative and qualitative research in various settings and in multiple institutions including Rutgers University, Boston College, Harvard University, and the University of Miami. At the core of my research endeavors is a commitment to enhancing multicultural competency and social justice considerations in the field of psychology. I have worked with underserved communities to better understand their strengths and struggles with the intention of producing research that contributes to a more equitable society. I am particularly interested in increasing equitable access to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in minority and underserved populations. I invite you to contact me if you are interested in collaborating on research, would like research consultation, or if you are in need of a journal reviewer.
