Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My research looks at ways to use motivational interviewing and technology as behavioral health interventions. My experience ranges from brief interventions for underage drinking, to adults in the criminal justice system, to heavy drinkers in hospital settings, to cancer risk screening interventions, to community-based health navigation.
My current projects are testing ways to improve health navigation, cancer risk screening, vocational success for veterans with a criminal history, alcohol interventions for adolescents and young adults, and health advocacy for people at risk of interpersonal violence. I also serve as intervention designer, trainer and supervisor for other studies of brief motivational interventions for substance use and related behaviors.
