Broadly my research interests include Latino mental health, anxiety, and treatment development. My research focuses on examining the effectiveness of empirically supported interventions for anxiety disorders in diverse groups, including Latinos, low-income, and rural populations, using feasible modes of service delivery. I am also interested in examining cultural factors that may influence psychopathology in Latinos, as well as the impact of culture on conceptualizations of mental illness and service utilization.
