In the iWell Lab, our research explores the intersection of identity, culture, and well-being. We aim to understand how psychological and sociocultural processes contribute to varying health and educational outcomes. We employ various methodological approaches within the broad rubrics of quantitative and qualitative research methods. Ultimately, our goal is to produce research that meaningfully contributes to greater social equity and improved well-being in diverse communities. Our current research interests include:

  • Mental Health and Well-being
  • Social Stratification (related to race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, immigration, etc.)
  • Identity Development
  • Health Psychology
  • Stigma and Discrimination
  • STEM Education for Underrepresented Students
  • Stress and Trauma
  • Interventions in Health and Education
  • Social Networking and Online Communities
