As a research scholar and marriage and family therapist, my primary aim is to conduct research that will lead to community based culturally responsive interventions and prevention programs for immigrant families in the US. Central to my research activities is the examination of factors related to immigrant families in transition and family predictors for risk and resilient behavior. Specifically, I use an intersectionality lens within a transnational framework to explore how immigrant experiences evolve and change as they stay connected to native countries while in host countries. This perspective provides vital tools that highlight the lives of marginalized families while empowering their cultural practices. These experiences allow for a closer examination of connections that migrants have to their native countries and how these connections may affect migrants’ resettlement experiences in receiving nations.
