She has participated in child and adolescent social and mental health research for the past 18 years at the Yale Child Study Center in project coordination and technological capacities. Her project coordination and study management activities have included: large scale, longitudinal assessments to identify socially and emotionally at-risk school youth to inform intervention development for positive outcomes with a focus on efficacy of science to practice translation to increase comprehension and utilization of findings among school administration; and a complex tri-state assessment to understand issues of identity development of Muslim and Arab children growing up in the US to raise awareness at educational and policy-making levels. Her involvement with our current project in Lebanon, a parenting intervention with Palestinian refugees, involves the management of the study's compliance with the Yale Internal Review Board.
