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.
