Research Scientist, Psychology

I study the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based psychosocial interventions for people with severe mental illness. In other words, I am interested in making sure that people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other mental illnesses get treatments that we know work. To this end, I study ways to measure successful implementation, and ways to change organizational and programmatic factors that may lead to better implementation. I am also interested in how building treatment around a person’s goals may make services more effective and satisfying.
