My research specializes in intercultural studies. I work on aspects of communication between cultures as well as the integration of different cultural behaviors and habits across societies with the goal of improving quality of life and increase learning outcomes. My current research interests focus on quality of life by bridging personal wellbeing and science while integrating technology. Specifically, I am investigating how yoga affects people's wellbeing and quality of life. My research is highly interdisciplinary and focused on applied outcomes useful to scholars and practitioners, health professionals, and the lay community. Specializing in qualitative research, I always strive to identify new phenomena by combining theory and practice.
