Research Interests: 
My research and teaching emphasize the critical importance of adopting both interdisciplinary and multicultural perspectives in the science and practice of clinical health psychology. More specifically, I study socio-cultural risk and protective factors (e.g., body image, ethnic identity, marginalization stress, weight stigma) that may contribute to and/or mitigate ethnic minority disparities in cardiometabolic health among African American college women. I also have a strong interest in the application of integrative mind-body approaches (including the practices of yoga, mindfulness meditation, and self-compassion) and Health at Every SizeĀ® principles towards optimizing a more holistic experience of health and well-being in ethnically-diverse groups.
