Title: Dual Identity, Perceived Discrimination and the Political Acculturation of Immigrants and Ethnic Minorities.

My research focuses broadly on the applications of social and cross-cultural psychology to political phenomena. I use experimental and non-experimental designs to study immigrant integration, acculturation, and cross-cultural adjustment. I am Canada's National Representative to the Sociedad Interamericana de Psicología (Interamerican Society of Psychology) and work in Guatemala on problems related to community mental health services, program evaluation, and citizen security.
