Research and Teaching Interests

The overarching goal of my research is to improve society. I often do this by addressing the needs of underrepresented and/or marginalized groups (e.g. ethnic minorities, low income populations). My research emphases include women’s empowerment, discrimination and microaggressions, and affirmative consent in sexual assault prevention. I enjoy working with individual students on honors and thesis projects related to these areas.

The name of my research team is DREAM Team. DREAM stands for Dare to Research, Empower, And Make the world better. We use qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches to address social justice issues. You can only join at the beginning of each fall. Thus, no new members will be accepted in the 2016-2017 school year. For the 2017-2018 school year, we are accepting new members to work on Latina/Hispanic women’s empowerment in San Bernardino and surrounding communities.

DREAM Team for 2016-2017 school year

To join the team, you must complete an application and do CITI training. The application below can be saved and emailed to mbadiee@csusb.edu. The CITI training must be completed before you work on any research projects and the certification you receive is good for five years.
