My research interests lie at the intersection of community psychology, public health, and policy. Broadly, I am interested in equitable community and systems change through the use of data, evaluation, and intervention. Moreover, I am interested in the application of community psychology in studying suicide and its prevention, particularly in terms of policy change and community-level approaches to prevention.
