Research Profile


Research Interests
My main interest is to understand how school and community interventions promote positive youth development. I want to address questions related to the ways adolescents develop social and emotional competence and make use of contextual assets to face issues related to poverty and violence. Therefore, I combine topics from program evaluation, statistics, developmental psychology, and education in my research and practice
