Anna Lau has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at UCLA. She has training in children’s mental health services research and the study of racial/ethnic disparities and access and utilization of care among youth. Her current research focuses on the efficacy of culturally adapted parent training (PT) interventions, but this experience has also inspired a stronger interest in implementation science. As an IRI Fellow, she hopes to gain the training to allow her to develop a research program in implementation research that will examine approaches to better connect immigrant families to care by infusing evidence based practice into the community setting that are relevant to their everyday lives.
