Research

Bearing witness to the marginalization of individuals in my clinical and international work sparked my passion for research focusing on LGBT persons and multicultural concerns. These experiences have motivated my research interests and strengthened my commitment to suicide prevention. Therefore, my program of research utilizes social media among other online resources to investigate the biopsychosocial and cultural factors that contribute to suicidal behavior among LGBT persons.
