Research Description

My research focuses on better understanding interactions between mental and physical health in adolescents, and on improving detection and management of child and adolescent depression in primary care settings. Prior research projects include assessing the longitudinal association between depression and obesity in adolescence, and evaluating racial and ethnic differences in depression diagnosis and treatment for Medicaid-covered youth. My most recent work involves evaluating quality of follow-up care for depressed youth and designing health system interventions to improve the delivery of evidence-based care and health outcomes for depressed adolescents in primary care settings.
