I am a counseling and cultural psychology researcher whose primary goal is to understand and support the holistic wellbeing of minority families through parenting research from a prevention science framework. Specifically, I am interested in understanding the parenting processes and outcomes in ethnic-racial minority families, including cultural socialization and parenting regulatory focus, with the goal to provide culturally-competent and evidence-based preventions and interventions. My research is situated in the context of longstanding health and social disparities, as well as systematic racial inequalities, in the United States. Thus, by targeting parenting processes, my research provides one critical solution to promote positive youth development and ultimately change the trajectories of marginalized families and communities. To this end, I used both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies in my research.
