Biography
For over 23 years, I have conducted research on health promotion, cancer prevention, environmental health, and reducing tobacco use in California and throughout Asia. I have a strong commitment to community engagement and action-oriented research. Most of my research has been collaborative working within multiethnic multidisciplinary teams. I have been an investigator on 10 large-scale cancer prevention and tobacco control studies funded by NIH and the CDC, three of which were community-based participatory research (CBPR) cancer prevention studies working in partnership with Asian immigrant communities in California. Recently, I have been examining cultural patterns shaping how our environment is continually polluted with toxic tobacco product waste, including JUUL waste in high schools.

My teaching experience includes undergraduate courses on critical studies of globalization, measurement of poverty and inequality, gender and development, and macroeconomics and microeconomics. I have also taught graduate courses on global health, poverty and health, and public health project planning, and research design mainly for community health nursing students.

My work has taken me throughout the world to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan and Syria. I have conducted trainings on health anthropology and evaluation research for the Ministries of Public Health in Thailand, Cambodia and Laos, for Osaka Prefecture Department of Public Health, and for the WHO Kobe Health Development Research Center. I have a strong command of Thai language and I am conversant in Japanese. I am also nearly fluent in Spanish and
Brazilian Portuguese.
