Research Interests 
Interventions Aimed At Reducing High-Risk Health Behaviors in Inner City Communities; Qualitative Research Design and Methodology RESEARCH EXPERIENCE Principal Investigator (03/2006-Present) NEIU Grow Your Own Teachers Program The Grow Our Own Teacher Program (GYO) establishes an initiative to encourage and support paraprofessionals, parents, and other active community members in becoming certified as teachers. GYO seeks to stimulate the development of consortia made up of an institution that prepare teachers (NEIU), a targeted school district (CPS), and a community organization (ACORN Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). Working together, these entities are to identify paraeducators and parents who have been leaders in schools with hard-to-staff positions and provide these individuals with the financial and other support they will need to complete teacher preparation programs. The new teachers are then to be placed in positions in the targeted schools. Principal Investigator (01/2007-08/2008) CeaseFire Evaluation Evaluated the effectiveness of the Chicago Project for Violence Prevention CeaseFire program, a State of Illinois funded violence reduction initiative. The purpose of the study was to find out what main "stakeholders" of this violence reduction program like individuals who reside in CeaseFire’s service areas, faith leaders, victims of violence, elected officials and the police had to say about the program. The evaluation used qualitative techniques, in particular, an ethnographic/focused interview process. Principal Investigator (04/2004) for a study with Whitney Young High School Social Work Department, Chicago, Illinois. I am conducting a focus group study that is examining adolescent males’ perceptions of manhood. The purpose of the study is to collect data that will be used to develop a rite of passage program for at-risk male students at Whitney Young. The study involved 8 focus groups that included over 50 freshmen through senior male students. I am currently analyzing the data. Research Associate (2000-present) Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy Research. University of Illinois-Chicago. I conducted my dissertation research, an ethnographic/focused interview study of a cultural intervention designed to reduce risky behaviors among inner-city African American youth at the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy Research. Having completed the study, my goal now is to further the study by placing the findings in the context of education policy and health disparities among African American youth. Research Assistant (1996-1997) on the Aban Aya Youth Project at the University Illinois-Chicago, Prevention Research Center. Research Project: to develop and then evaluate a school-based program designed to promote abstinence from sex, teach students how to avoid drugs and alcohol, and to teach them how to resolve conflicts non-violently.
