I am a Research Assistant Professor in the University of Washington School of Social Work, Director of the Methods Division at the Indigenous Wellness Research Institute, and a Research Affiliate with the Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and specialize in quantitative methodology in behavioral health research.

The focus of my work is making cutting-edge statistical approaches for evaluating behavioral interventions more accessible to non-statisticians.

Substantive Research

One of my key interests is in improving treatment options and access to care for underserved groups. The substantive areas I am most interested in include:

  • Alcohol use disorders
  • Reducing cardiovascular disease risk
  • Improving HIV antiretroviral adherence
  • Reducing suicidal behavior

Quantitative Research

I conduct research on applied statistical techniques for evaluating categorical and zero-inflated outcomes, including alcohol quantity and frequency, alcohol-related problems, and medication adherence. My recent research focuses on integrative data analysis and combining data across studies to evaluate intervention effectiveness.
