About Me

I joined the USC School of Social Work in 2009 as a post-doctoral fellow and in 2010, I was promoted to tenure track Assistant professor. I am originally from Mexico City, but I spent 13 years in Chicago, where I completed my doctoral education at the University of Chicago, School of Social Service Administration. My research interests include the organization, structure and effectiveness of behavioral health services tailored to racial and ethnic minority populations.  My current work focuses on the implementation of linguistic and culturally responsive practices in substance abuse treatment. I have received numerous emerging scholar awards and my work has been funded by federal and institutional grants. I have taught courses on organizational theory and policy implementation, as well as in research methods for social workers. Professionally, I have over 13 years of clinical experience offering bilingual-bicultural clinical services in psychiatric and substance abuse treatment settings and I have consulted for national and international organizations on diversity management and program evaluation. I have presented  research findings at various conferences (e.g., APHA, AHSR, NHSN, SSWR, Rx Diversity, etc).
