I am the Associate Director of Equity and Engagement for the Cannabis Research Center at the School of Public Health and a professor in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health. My research focuses on substance use epidemiology and policy with a special focus on race, social class, and neighborhood influences. I have  served as a principle investigator or co-investigator on nearly 40 externally-funded research projects and conducted studies on a variety of topics, e.g.; alcohol use in African American populations, implementation of policies related to high-alcohol-content beverages, alcohol outlet density, public policy and economic development, and cannabis use. 

My current research focuses on how policies can be  implemented equitably. I am also the co-chair of  SPH’s Health Equity Work Group, a member of the Alcohol Epidemiology Program and the Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity, and the faculty co-lead for CTSI/ Community Engagement to Advance Research and Community Health (CEARCH).


Equity, injuries, alcohol use and problems, policy, neighborhood influences.
