Expertise: My research interests include attitude development and expression in the following areas: prejudice and discrimination, ethnic and racial identity (with a focus on Arabs and African Americans), acculturation, immigration, and attitudes toward affirmative action beneficiaries. In addition, I also study the psychological antecedents of minority standardized test performance as well as issues related to culturally relevant research methodology. More recently, I have also been working on a project assessing the relationship between racial identity and body image for African American women.

Expertise: My research examines the processes by which young people understand their cultural selves and how this meaning making influences relationships, academic achievement, well-being and a sense of social responsibility. I have a strong belief that research should provide the theoretical framework and empirical evidence to guide practice and intervention. Using an action-research approach, I explore resiliency and cultural competence in the context of 1) the processes of racial socialization, 2) community vs. individual investment in the Black community, 3) risk and protective factors in coping with racism and 4) class and upward mobility.
