Research & Clinical Interests

I am a social and behavioral scientist. My primary research interests include cancer control behaviors of minority populations to reduce health disparities. I have active NIH grants for developing and testing culturally integrated liver cancer intervention program in high risk groups of Asian Americans. The goal of my research is to increase liver cancer awareness through outreach, screening, education, and dissemination. Other research interests include bio-behavior pathways to liver cancer, stress and liver cancer risks, hepatitis B infection in refugee population, lay health worker intervention, mHealth intervention, community-based participatory research (CBPR), and developing non-traditional educational materials (e.g., photonovel).

I have also actively participated as a co-investigator in several NIH funded prospective grants that have supported a longitudinal study of African Americans, focusing on minority mental health, substance use, and HIV risk behaviors.
