I have conducted clinical research in the aftermath of Hurricane María in Puerto Rico. I have also studied  the relationship between shame, human made trauma, natural disaster trauma, drinking, resiliency and stress in Puerto Rico. Understanding the role trauma has in individuals, groups and communities is an interest of mine.


 Additionally, I am really interested in understanding colonialism and the impact it has had on individuals and societies as well as how to use post-colonial/decolonizing practices with the people we work with, be that patients/clients, leaders and/or organizations as a whole.
