I work with the Az Center for Rural Health and the Comprehensive Pain and Addiction Center. My research interests include evaluating substance misuse policies, treatment services, and increasing access to care. Current projects include promoting access to medication for opioid use disorder, training a lived-experience workforce, and studying rural workforce provider shortages. I previously worked at the Arizona Smokers’ Helpline and maintain an interest in tobacco cessation services, tobacco harm reduction, and electronic cigarette policies. My work is informed by a public health approach to addiction that accounts for social and environmental influences.
