Saint Louis University (SLU)

I am Professor of Research Methodology and Sociology in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and a core faculty member of the Public and Social Policy Program. My expertise includes research methodology (research design, statistics, and qualitative study), immigrants, and healthcare system. I have brought external grants as PI, co-PI, or on the research team from the Lilly Foundation, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Regional Health Commission, and Missouri Foundation for Health. I launched a program, “Culturally Appropriate Transformation to Culture of Health (CATCH)” program, through which SLU volunteer students offer personalized health-coaching to immigrant communities by collaborating with interdisciplinary faculty team and community organizations.
