Research

Research interests

My research focuses on the health and well-being in vulnerable groups and patient populations. I am particularly interested in how social and psychological factors (e.g., group memberships, social perceptions, stigma, attitudes, and identity) can be influential in the promotion of health and well-being. I also study intervention development and evaluation. I use mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative) for my research.
