Research interests

  • Well-being
  • Community mental health promotion
  • Mental health literacy
  • Character strengths, personal values

Guided by theories of positive and community psychology, health promotion, and well-being science, my first line of research is quantitative measurement and modeling of well-being and personality at the individual-level (e.g., personality strengths, values, character traits, motivation). My other line of research is focused on mental health promotion from a socio-ecological lens and includes methods such as implementation science and knowledge translation. I am particularly interested in evaluating mental health-related policies and programs with the goal of providing the evidence needed to strengthen future policy and programming to promote mental health.
