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.  I also serve on the advisory board for the Center for Mestizo and Indigenous Research and Outreach at Washington State University which advances interdisciplinary research on social, economic, educational and political issues faced by Latino/Mestizo and Native/Indigenous communities.
