My research focuses on mental health services for low-resource and underserved populations both globally and domestically. My training is in psychiatric epidemiology, including a background in advanced methodological approaches and study design. My current work focuses on the nexus of implementation science and mental health interventions, particularly suicide.

  • Suicide Prevention
  • American Indian Health
  • Native Health
  • Dissemination and Implementation Science
  • Global Mental Health

My research primarily focuses on suicide prevention, implementation science and mental health services research for underserved populations. Here are a couple of examples of my work:
