Dr. Cindy C. Sangalang is a post-doctoral fellow with the Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center (SIRC) at ASU. She earned her masters and doctorate in social welfare at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research examines factors that contribute to mental health and well-being for youth in immigrant and refugee families. Dr. Sangalang is particularly interested in ways that race, ethnicity, gender, and culture intersect and influence mental health for Southeast Asian adolescents. Her current research projects examine discrimination and its influence on adjustment for Cambodian American adolescents, sociocultural and intergenerational stressors among Southeast Asian youth, and community-based participatory research with Asian American communities.
