Dr. Chow’s research program is structured around three interrelated sub-themes: (1) longitudinal trajectories of mental health and well-being during challenging times and life transitions, (2) psychological, social, and behavioral determinants of mental-health and well-being, and (3) impact of mental health and well-being on proximal and distal outcomes. Her research contributes to the literature on the etiology and developmental pathways of mental health and emotional problems as well as their protective and risk factors. The findings of her research have important implications for designing programs to prevent mental health problems and build resilience in the vulnerable youth as well as the maternal populations. Dr. Chow’s work has been cited by 1174 publications and with an H-Index of 17, based on Google Scholar (by Sept 2020).
