Research Interests

I am a health services researcher with expertise in health policy research and economic analyses. My research is in the areas of maternal and child health, organizational collaboration within the healthcare and social service systems, and policy evaluation as it relates to impacts on cost, quality, and access. I currently serve as PI and Co-I on several studies, including a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation supported grant to examine cross-sector alignment among organizations serving pregnant and parenting women in recovery.
