Research Focus

My research has three main goals:

I use quantitative and qualitative methods, community-based participatory research, and implementation science .

 Further, much of my research is conducted through multidisciplinary partnerships, for example with local community mental health agencies, hospitals, and safety net medical clinics.  

My work  has garnered honors such as the University of California Presidents’ Dissertation Fellowship and the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Division 56 Outstanding Dissertation in Trauma Psychology award. 

I aim for my research to be community and culturally-informed and relevant to intervention, prevention, and policy.
