Research Interests

My research interests are broadly focused on the implementation and use of evidence-based approaches for preventing substance misuse, particularly in children in families with adduction. I am currently working on a grants to develop a multi-model, cross system care model to identify children at risk for substance misuse, tailor two existing treatments to better fit this population, and increase training and community knowledge of this population.
