Research Statement

My research interests lie at the intersection of social, clinical, and community psychology. 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 the ways in which intersectionality affect suicidality.
