I am the Director of the Methods Division at the Indigenous Wellness Research Institute at the University of Washington (UW). I am a licensed clinical psychologist and specialize in statistical methodology and research design, with a particular focus on the evaluation of behavioral health interventions.

Substantive Research

My broad focus is on the evaluation of behavioral health interventions. 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.
