Research Interests

My research interests are often focused on examining the effects of sexism, stereotypes, and gender-role traditionality on individuals’ attitudes toward violence against women. Another area of my research is to investigate the cultural factors, such as stigma, discrimination, collectivism, and so forth that may influence one’s attitudes toward mental health services. I conduct these studies in cross-cultural settings.
