Biography

My research focuses on family dynamics and children development in the context of culture. Specifically how parent-child acculturation gaps impact on migrant children outcomes (i.e., well-being) and family relationship. I also aim to expand the acculturation gap-distress model to the family level, in which not only the parent-child dyad, but also husband-wife, sibling-sibling dyads are examined.
