Brief description of research interests:

My research focuses on the use of community partnership approaches for developing sustainable, community-based interventions to prevent mental health disorders among youth living in poverty. A current project involves the use of action research to adapt an evidence-based depression prevention program for African American adolescents exposed to the chronic stress of urban poverty and to evaluate it's effectiveness when delivered in the novel setting of neighborhood after-school programs.

The best advice (related to the college experience) that I can give students is to sieze the day; take every opportunity to maximize your academic, personal, and professional experiences. After all, you're only a college student once (hopefully)!
