Research Interests

My research focuses on the role of ethnicity, acculturation, and gender identity in youth drug use and in health disparities, on the school and neighborhood social contexts that contribute to risk behaviors and resiliency against them, on gender and racial inequities in professional careers, and the organizational sources of discrimination. As the Director of Research and Co-Principal Investigator for ASU's Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center (SIRC), which is an NIH Center of Excellence for health disparities research, I work with a team of ASU faculty researchers and graduate students from Sociology, Social Work, Psychology, Justice Studies, Communications, Education and Nursing who engage in research on substance use, mental health and health disparities, addressing the distinctive cultures of the Southwest borderlands region. My SIRC research projects encompass studies of youth drug use in Phoenix elementary and middle schools, American Indian communities in and surrounding Phoenix, as well as youth in Mexico and Spain. I am part of a team of researchers who design, implement, and evaluate culturally grounded prevention and treatment programs. SIRC's keepin' it REAL (Refuse, Explain, Avoid, Leave) project for youth is a SAMSHA model program for preventing drug use. Wearing another hat, I have conducted national studies of faculty in U.S. colleges and universities to sort out individual, departmental, disciplinary, organizational, and geographic influences on gender and racial gaps in faculty recruitment, rank, and salary.
