"Grown men [and women] can learn from children"

Currently, I am a graduate student at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) where I am a research assistant in the Fullerton Longitudinal Study (FLS) and the Quantitative Methodology Graduate Lab. Simultaneously, I work as a statistical consultant for CSUF faculty and doctoral students.

My research interests include child and adolescent well-being and psychopathology. I employ structural equation models to investigate the impact of family relationships on development across time. Also, with the use of item response theory, I aim to develop and refine psychological measures for children.

My passion to mitigate and prevent childhood obesity has influenced my decision to pursue a doctoral degree in clinical psychology. My long-term goal is earn a tenure-track faculty position and continue to investigate mental disorders in children and adolescents. As a mental health professional, I would like to create health facilities in minority and low-income communities to promote positive mental and physical health practices.
