Doctoral Candidate

I am a PhD candidate of Public Health Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville currently on a Fulbright Fellowship in Bordeaux, France. My research utilizes mixed-methodological approaches in addressing youth and perinatal health challenges related to substance use. Since 2017, I have continued my research on developmental outcomes related to childhood trauma and neonatal abstinence syndrome.
