As an epidemiologist and health services researcher, I conduct policy-relevant research at the intersection of addiction, psychiatry, and infectious disease. I am an Assistant Professor-in-Residence at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine and Health Services Research.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford Medicine on the NIDA-funded Interdisciplinary Research Training in Pain and Substance Use Disorders T32 program.
My work has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, American Journal of Public Health, AIDS and Behavior, American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Sexually Transmitted Infections, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, LGBT Health, Journal of Urban Health, AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses.
My work has been covered in the New York Times, Vox, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, AIDSMap, NBC, and more. My article on cannabis laws and opioid overdose mortality was named one of 2019’s top 10 PNAS papers with greatest impact on public understanding of science.
