Daisy is a Ph.D. candidate in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Miami. She is currently on her clinical internship year at UCLA’s Semel Institute in the Adolescent Serious Mental Illness Track, working in CAPPS. Daisy completed her B.A. at Princeton University in 2017. Her research interests center around the role of culture on the illness trajectory of psychotic spectrum disorders, cultural adaptations for empirically based treatments, suicidality, and serving various marginalized and underrepresented communities such as sexual minorities, people of color, and those with serious mental illness. Daisy aims to help these communities through an academic career that includes community-based work, collaboration with individuals with lived experience, dissemination and advocacy efforts, policy change, and mentorship.
