Biography

Dr. Roberto Cancio is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Senior Research Associate in the Psychology Applied Research Center at Loyola Marymount University. As a researcher, Dr. Cancio has focused on the intersection between the social, behavioral mechanisms, and pathways underpinning resilience and susceptibility to adverse mental health conditions that disproportionately affect racial and ethnic priority veteran populations and the impact of racism and discrimination on health behavior and strategies for military families. Concurrently, Dr. Cancio contributes to the design and implementation of community-based research that takes into account how culture, context, affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of life outcomes for under-resourced communities of color.

Dr. Cancio has worked on multiple projects focused on issues surrounding public health and mental health disparities, juvenile justice, adolescent alcohol and drug prevention, homelessness, community organizing, and civic engagement. He has assisted in the development, implementation, and evaluation of various projects with the California Department of Probation, Liberty Hill, California Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Southern District of Florida, Community Coalition, Social Model Recovery Services, and The Nippon Foundation. Dr. Cancio has also interviewed with Univision for his work on the opioid epidemic.

He is currently a research fellow at the Interdisciplinary Research Training Institute on Hispanic Drug Abuse at the University of Southern California.
