Personal Statement

​My research focuses on Veteran and military suicide prevention. I am interested in risk and protective factors that are unique to the military community. My work focuses on systematic clinical and public health approaches to reducing suicide behaviors. I am also interested in the ways technology can facilitate access to mental health care and improve the quality of care. My work has included traditional telehealth approaches, smartphone capabilities, and evolving innovative technologies.
