His areas of research interest extend knowledge gleaned from transdisciplinary inquiries investigating intersectional aspects of the social, psychological and spiritual underpinnings of cultural systems of power and their function of (re)locating people along hierarchal sociogenic continuums in ways that inform applied research in the fields of contemplative sciences (e.g. mindfulness-based interventions), eudaimonic well-being and the humanities, advancing development of community-based participatory and clinical interventions reimagined as transformative learning ecologies animating endogenous paradigms of personal and collective selfhood as an approach to ameliorate systemic barriers to self-determined flourishing thereby improving community and population level health.
