She subsequently studied neuroendocrinological and behavioral correlates of pediatric anxiety disorders as a postgraduate at the Yale Child Study Center.
Her current research focuses on optimizing mental health screening and trauma-informed care in pediatrics through systems design, healthcare data mining, and implementation science. She is a Physician Builder in the Epic EHR system, with additional accreditations in population health and patient-entered data.
