My dissertation research focuses on how sexuality affects women's and men’s exposure to lifetime adversity, their sources of resilience, and the impact of both adversity and resilience on health and well-being. My work centers around sexual minority communities across the Asia-Pacific region. Alongside my dissertation research, I am engaged in studies on transgender health, women’s empowerment, intimate partner violence, and child maltreatment.
