Year of Entry: 2019
My research interests focus on improving the lives of people with mental illness through occupational science. I’m particularly interested in how technology can be employed in new ways to support day-to-day occupational performance, as well as the power of narrative in relation to mental health, especially in the Asian American community and other underserved populations. In the Sensory Integration, Engagement and Family Life lab, I am currently supporting research projects examining the experiences of autistic adolescents and young adults.
