Yabin is generally interested in the dynamics of intimate relationships especially among married, separated, divorced, and remarried couples. 


Yabin provided counseling service for children in Leestown Middle School in Kentucky (2017~2019)

Currently, Yabin joins Gulf Research Program to improve the Cambodian-Laotian families and community well-being

Current Research
