Bienvenidos a CienciaPR, una red de recursos para todos los interesados en las ciencias y en Puerto Rico.
I'm also a lecturer at the University of Massachusetts in Boston at the Department of Health and Exercise Sciences. After a bachelor degree in physical education from the UPR and a masters from Northern Michigan University I was accepted to the PhD program in rehabilitation sciences from Boston University.
Current line of research - Examine the extent to which health related fitness, skill-related fitness components, self-efficacy toward physical activity, motor coordination and acculturation levels predict physical activity participation and sedentary behaviors in Latino children of Latino sub-groups, specifically children of Caribbean Latino backgrounds (e.g., Puerto Ricans and Dominicans).
Prospective line of research - Study how the modification of correlates of physical activity can be use to develop better population-based health prevention programs and policies directed to specific groups of Latino individuals.
