My research addresses the challenges of sustaining health and of advancing opportunity and equity.  In the area of health psychology, I examine the long-term adjustment, health and well-being of survivors of childhood cancer and their families. In 2015, I received a grant from the Association for Research of Childhood Cancer to support my research in this area.  In the area of multicultural psychology, I have studied the unique social and ecological circumstances and the corresponding developmental competencies of racial/ethnic minority and/or first-generation students.
