Research Interests & Collaborators

There are two main trajectories of my research: (a) examining risk and protective factors associated with positive adaptations to stress/trauma by using subgroup analyses, such as latent profile analysis and (b) using community-engaged program implementation strategies to enhance the effectiveness of evidence-based preventive interventions for substance use and mental health problems, specifically for populations exposed to stress and traumatic events. I am passionate about using existing data sources to advance our understanding of community mental health and advance substance use prevention programs. My primary collaborations are with Mayra Bámaca-Colbert and Damon Jones.
