Primary Research Area
My research has primarily focused on the examination of antecedents and consequences of substance use disorder comorbidity, with an emphasis on harm reduction, brief interventions, and implementation science to help prevent and treat mental and related physical health conditions. More specifically, my program of research is organized in two related areas: my clinical research is focused on developing prevention interventions that target multiple influences of behavioral health conditions, and my implementation research is focused on improving the healthcare system using novel methods to study implementation strategies and mechanisms. I also am a licensed clinical psychologist and I have expertise in the development, evaluation, and dissemination of motivational interviewing for substance misuse. My recent research has focused on the utility of stand-alone ("pure") motivational interviewing at intake for individuals seeking outpatient addiction treatment services.
