Ashley Baker

Health Psychology
Research Interests: 

Ashley is originally from Colorado and moved to the west coast on a scholarship to play basketball and earn her BS in psychology from Southern Oregon University. She then moved to Los Angeles to complete her MA in experimental psychology from CSU, Northridge.  Now, working with Dr. Deborah Wiebe at UCM, Ashley's current research, Ashley's current research and general interests revolve around the careful investigation of routes to health promotion and disease prevention among historically at risk-populations. More specifically, Ashley's research is most concerned with judgment and decision-making in the context of healthy-living (i.e., accessible and adequate health-care, healthy lifestyle choices, and risky behavior reduction) amongst underserved/underrepresented populations. Moreover, as a researcher, her goal is to discover the underlying decision-making mechanisms and psychosocial factors of at-risk populations and to implement culturally-tailored medical decision-aids/interventions into those communities.
