I have a Psychology Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a Post-Doctoral Master degree in Clinical and Translational Research. Currently, I am an Associate Professor at Ponce Health Sciences University (PHSU), Puerto Rico. I hold a joint position at PHSU’s School of Medicine (SOM) and School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences (SBBS). Under my current faculty position, I devote 65% of my time to leading and co-leading trans-disciplinary population health research projects. Moreover, I have experience providing service to the community by partnering with local community-based organizations that provide psychosocial care to cancer patients/survivors. Additionally, I deliver mental health care to cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers.
