Research Interests

My scholarly contributions are mainly focused on: (1) International social work (immigrant and refugee populations), (2) Child welfare, and (3) Artificial Intelligence (AI) and social work. Over the past five years, I have disseminated my knowledge and passion in these three areas of my research via publications. I have also presented at international, national, and local conferences and workshops. My post-MSW practice experience, in addition to training during my doctoral studies, has increased my awareness of issues regarding immigrant and refugee populations and shaped my strengths-based perspective in approaching such issues.
