Experiences & Accomplishments
My research focuses on mental health services for low-resource and underserved populations. My training is in psychiatric epidemiology, including a background in advanced methodological approaches and study design. My current work focuses on suicide prevention by leveraging artificial intelligence and implementation science to better serve communities that face significant related disparities.
My research primarily focuses on suicide prevention, implementation science, and the translation of artificial intelligence to improve mental health services and care. Here are a couple of examples of my work:
