My work focuses on understanding and evaluating the impacts of public policies on complex social problems, especially those that involve multiple systems. Currently, I am examining the impacts of supportive housing on costs associated with medical care, shelter, and jail for high need homeless individuals, as well as participating in an evaluation of community-level efforts to improve the food and exercise environments. I am interested in developing stronger research methods to evaluate these kinds of policies and interventions.
