Description of Research

I am interested in positive youth development, specifically working with minority youth/adolescents, to investigate factors and develop interventions that would support healthy decision-making, resiliency, and positive academic engagement. To this end, I am interested in work not only with individuals, but families, schools, and the wider community to implement sound programs that can be disseminated to influence practice and policy.
