Her research interests include substance use policy, disparities in access to care, and peer-delivered services. Her STS background has led her to attend to how expertise is valued in health care policymaking. Since 2017, she has also worked as project director for UCLA’s evaluation of the California Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Expansion Project.
