Yolanda Vasquez-Salgado, PhD - Psychology
I grew up in Oxnard, California, and I am proud to be a first-generation college student and daughter of immigrant parents from Mexico. I believe that my background and experiences continue to serve as a strength in my research inquiries of which I am very passionate.
My program of research centers on investigating the role of sociocultural forces (i.e., sociodemographic, cultural mismatch) in underrepresented students’ health (mental, physical) and academic adjustment during the transition to college. I received my Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology, with a minor in Culture, Brain and Development, from the University of California, Los Angeles. I am also a proud graduate of the Bachelors and Masters Programs in Psychology at California State University, Northridge.
