I am a counseling and cultural psychologist. My research focuses on ethnic-racial socialization, identity development, and racialized experiences among Asian American and multiracial populations. I am also interested in the experiences of people in interracial romantic relationships, as an antecedent to ethnic-racial socialization of multiracial youth.
