Research Overview

My academic training and years of experience designing and conducting quantitative and qualitative studies have resulted in a body of work that spans topic areas and populations including those related to child well-being. I have conducted research with parent populations on topics such as access to mental health care, school choice, and curricular changes. Recently, as co-PI of a grant from the Institute for Educational Sciences I have begun to work in research regarding school-based mental health practices in public school districts in the United States. I am a member of CSCH steering committee and will provide methodological consulting for projects that have been secured and for proposals to secure future funding in areas under CSCH. I am also interested in working to secure additional funding to continue work in school-based mental health policy.
