Research/Career Interests: 

My research program is aimed at increasing the study of marginalized groups, specifically Latinx, in the psychological sciences by utilizing a range of methodological, statistical, and culturally sensitive research approaches. These include quantitative, qualitative, psychophysiological, and self-report. In regard to analytic considerations, I prioritize multilevel modeling in my research. Specifically, I employ intraindividual and longitudinal multilevel modeling analyses to parse the effects of person-centered variables (e.g. demographics) on behavioral and psychophysiological trial-level data. My approach to research is also one founded in culturally adaptive and sensitive approaches. This is manifested in developing projects with a particular sample in mind and adapting the materials, incentives, and theoretical approach to properly contextualize my recruitment and analysis. I also strive to promote transparency of my research methods by using the open-source statistical software R and by making data publicly available on Open Science Framework. My work, overall, reflects the integrative and interdisciplinary approach that is central to my research program where I bridge my diverse expertise in cognitive psychophysiological methods with my work in cultural psychology.
