Department of Psychology

Role in the ISU ADVANCE Program
In my role as a Facilitator in the Department Enhancement Program, I will first facilitate focus groups in designated departments to address both what is working well and what might work better in improving the culture of the department. Following this, I will prepare reports based on these focus groups to highlight themes in the above two areas for the designated department. 

Research Interests
My general research interests are (A) coping with minority-related stress (e.g., acculturative stress, bicultural stress, minority status stress, or discrimination) in order to promote well-being among minority individuals, in particular Asian international student, Asian immigrants, and Asian Americans, (B) emotional regulations in cross-cultural studies, (C) counseling process and outcome research, and (D) the implications of attachment theory to counseling psychology.
