My research leverages computational approaches to inform risk, progression, and treatment response prediction in the context of psychopathology. Furthermore, I am interested in how precision mental health approaches can inform diagnostic nosology. We know that the burden of diagnosis and lack of access to treatment are unequally shared in the population. Developing accessible, just-in-time interventions may help mitigate existing health disparities, but not without a careful eye towards systemic factors that drive these divides in the first place. Currently, my work focuses on utilizing geolocation data as a low burden tool to predict lapse in individuals with Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). An additional aim of this work is to explore algorithmic bias. The hope of this work is to inform the development of equitable personalized digital therapeutics for Substance Use Disorders (SUDs). I am committed to approaching my work from both a dimensional (i.e., transdiagnostic) and intersectional angle to improve mental health outcomes.
