My program of research focuses on early prevention of mental illness. My initial research involved clinical trials of providing psychosocial interventions for vulnerable populations such as patients with schizophrenia. My dissertation research was developing a theoretical framework to describe the prodromal schizophrenia process for patients with schizophrenia in Taiwan.

For the next projects, I am examining this theoretical framework with different race and ethnicity groups, developing questionnaires for early identification of people who are at risk of developing mental health conditions, and designing self-management interventions to halt the progression of mental illness.
