Research Interests

I am interested in the intersections of public health and criminal justice, occupational health, and global health and human rights. The intersections of public health and criminal justice include the health outcomes associated with victimization (i.e., sex trafficking, intimate partner violence), and occupational health concerns and potential disparities among first responders. I am especially interested in the interplay between first responder health and the health of the broader community. I am also interested in the use of mixed methods, community-engaged research with occupational groups, and the translation of research into practice and policy. My dissertation work uses mixed methods to explore moral injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and resilience in law enforcement professionals in Wisconsin.
