    Research Overview

  • My research agenda seeks to identify behavioral interventions to improve the health of well-being of vulnerable and under-served populations that are at high risk of experiencing stigma and discrimination. Vulnerable populations I have worked with include racial minorities and immigrants, religious minorities, and sexual and gender minorities both in the United States and in International Settings. I teach Data Analytics (Undergraduate, Masters, Doctoral levels), Research Methods, and Global/Comparative Health.
