Research Interests

  • Psychiatric Epidemiology
  • Social Epidemiology

What brought you to GREMAP?

I have worked on a number of injury prevention projects in the past, including on the topic of youth suicide prevention and medical opioid misuse in adult populations, and became interested in further understanding psychiatric and behavioral disorders and their intersections with other chronic conditions and physical health. GREMAP is a great, collaborative, and rich environment to explore these interests with diverse scholars.

What do you like to do outside of work/school?

I enjoy reading and writing for leisure as well as occasionally baking and amateurly reviewing shows and movies.
