Short description of research interests (max 100 words)

My research interests revolve around exploring how sociocultural factors (e.g., cultural values, and poverty) and dyadic processes (e.g., mother-child communication, parenting practices, and parent characteristics) relate to Latino children socio-emotional development and mental health. I am particularly committed to develop knowledge that can contribute to evidence based-practices that, in turn, can foster positive child and adolescent development among Latino populations.
