Our current research agenda highlights three themes:

  1. emotional well-being and academic performance of adolescents
  2. refugee and immigrant mental health
  3. technological innovations to enhance socioemotional wellbeing

We investigate cultural conceptions of wellbeing from the perspectives of multiple stakeholders (students, parents, teachers, healthcare providers, community members). Our training mission is student-centered (undergraduate, doctoral, and post-doctoral), research-driven, poised to adopt, develop, and share new research and intervention models, methodologies, and technologies. We have developing collaborations with colleagues in the U.S., Mexico, Haiti, India, Spain, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Brazil, South Africa and Tanzania. The research of the CGMH is trans-disciplinary: cultural, biological, climate-environmental, neuroscientific, epigenetic, mobile health technological.
