The goal of my research is to better understand the causes of addiction in vulnerable, complex populations, and to develop effective and disseminable treatment interventions for addiction in these groups by using a translational science approach that includes basic science, patient-oriented treatment and population-based studies.
In addition, I am engaged with public mental health administration in which I advance improvements in care for people with serious mental illness and multiple comorbidities.

I currently lead several large studies, including a trial using functional magnetic resonance imaging to assess the impact of cannabis on brain reward function in schizophrenia, and the implementation of integrated primary care and community mental health.
I am trained as an “Entering Mentoring” Facilitator, with a goal of increasing quality, equity and inclusion in science mentoring. I mentor research trainees on a variety of projects across the translational range - from a secondary analyses describing substance use in young adults with multiple morbidities, to a literature review of impact of cannabis on psychosis, to usability testing of apps for the treatment of addiction, and a qualitative study of a learning community to support statewide implementation of clinical services.
