My work bridges epidemiology and health behavior through the full course of survey, qualitative, and mixed methods research. I seek to understand the engagement in prevention and treatment of substance use and infectious diseases among vulnerable populations. My research also includes the design, implementation, and evaluation of behavioral and multilevel interventions to reduce substance use and engage those living with HIV into the continuum of care.
