Research Interests

My professional interests include providing gender-affirming health care to transgender/gender non-conforming individuals. Health system innovation is needed to better serve LGBTQIA+ individuals, immigrants, refugees, and individuals affected by homelessness or living with substance use disorders, and finding effective ways to integrate behavioral health serivices in primary care is an essential component of this.
