Research areas

My research focuses on improving the mental health and wellbeing of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). People with IDD experience significant trauma as well as health and mental health disparities. My goals are to enhance the awareness of trauma and mental health symptoms, improve measurement, and improve service delivery so that people with IDD can experience healthy outcomes, community inclusion, and wellbeing.
