Welcome! I am an assistant professor of Counseling Psychology in the College of Education at Purdue University. I am the director of the Parenting, Race, and Family lab, which focuses on understanding how individuals and families in the diaspora survive and thrive. To this end, we conduct research related to discrimination and mental health, parenting and family socialization, cultural diversity and social justice, and culturally responsive intervention. I am particularly interested in diaspora via adoption, immigration, refuge, as well as education.

This site features our team and recent research projects at the PRF Lab, information about joining the team, and resources.
