She contributes to education content for Greater Good in Education and Greater Good magazine, with a special focus on moral/ethical development, and has helped run the annual Summer Institute for Educators since its inception. She also makes presentations to educators and parents about moral and prosocial development and has coordinated projects such as educator surveys and the gratitude in education grant program. Her research interests include moral development and education; social-emotional learning and prosocial development; and parenting/family socialization across cultures.

She loves traveling, but is always grateful to return to the beautiful environment, weather, diversity, and vegetarian food availability in the Bay Area.
