Title: 
Health Psychology
Research Interests: 

Daniel is a Doctoral Candidate who studies social inequity in the context of health psychology. Specifically, he examines sociocultural and family processes that play into health disparities in pediatric chronic illness management. His dissertation uses growth curve modeling to investigate how parent-adolescent relationship quality might mediate neighborhood-level socioeconomic risk to type 1 diabetes management among late adolescents transitioning into emerging adulthood. Other current projects include using multilevel SEM to identify when, during development, risky trajectories of blood glucose appear based on age, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. He is also the co-founder of Speed Diversity Dialogue, a low-cost multicultural excellence training workshop designed to improve diversity awareness and promote social inclusivity.
