Summary

I am interested in studying minority youth in the U.S., as well as youth in low- and middle-income countries, who have endured traumatic events such as violence, terrorism, war, and disaster. I am also drawn to working with young immigrant and forcedly displaced populations (e.g., refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons). I aspire to adapt, test, disseminate, and implement culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed interventions to mitigate child trauma, as well as to integrate community-based participatory methods in these designs. Combined in an aim to improve accessibility and quality of care in diverse populations and low-resource settings, I hope to utilize community mental health practices that build on the strengths, respond to the needs, and respect the restraints of service centers.
