In recent years, Jamilah has managed to merge her interests in psychology (anxiety and anxiety-related disorders), music, race, food/hunger injustice, religion, and social ethics, into multiple research projects. As an executive board member of Yale Progressive Mental Health, Jamilah is committed to working for issues of social and economic justice in mental health, particularly among marginalized and disadvantaged populations (ie: poor, women, Black, etc.). She has conducted research on such populations in El Salvador, Ghana, Zambia, India, and China over the past few years. She aspires to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology, specializing in CBT to both conduct research, and treat underserved communities who are less likely to receive mental health treatment otherwise.
