She subsequently studied neuroendocrinological and behavioral correlates of pediatric anxiety disorders as a postgraduate at the Yale Child Study Center. Her current work focuses on the optimization of mental health screening in pediatric primary care through systems design, healthcare data mining, and implementation science.
