I did my graduate work in the field of Cultural Psychology at Boston College, and my dissertation was titled Finding Place in America: Acculturation Narratives of Japanese Women.
My current research interests include the impact of social oppression on the psychology of both advantaged and disadvantaged group members, factors that lead people to take collective action, and qualitative research on life histories of people who become allies to minority groups.
I teach a course titled "Prejudice and Discrimination" in the Graduate Program for Global Studies.
