Research Interests

My research focuses on the development and adaptation of effective interventions to reach underserved populations engaging in substance use. I am developing strategies to optimally adapt evidence-based programs to fit the contextual needs and priorities where they will be implemented, in a way that fosters sustainable program delivery and successful health outcomes.
