Research Interests

  • Individual and multicultural differences in career decision-making
  • Teaching of psychology

My current research projects focus on the role of multicultural factors, such as centrality of ethnic-racial identity and gender identity, affect learning experiences, self-efficacy, and career interests. I am additionally interested in how methodological factors in interest assessments and self-affirmation exercises influence career choices. I also conduct research on the teaching of psychology, specifically focusing on how flipping the classroom and creating professional websites affects learning and career development.
